Wildflowers of Bradlaugh Fields #25 Hawthorn

“Ne’er cast a clout til may be out” is often thought to refer to the idea that it’s too proverbially chilly to go out without winter clothing until the time when the hawthorn or may blossom is appearing. What do you think?

Be that as it may, if you compare hawthorn‘s flowers with those of apple, sloe or bramble you will see straight away just how similar they are to each other.

Crataegus monogyna
