The hawthorn tree is full of leaf and maturing haws.
A potential rival tree has sprouted underneath... a forgotten acorn planted by a squirrel maybe?
Marsh thistles growing up amongst the lower leaves of the hawthorn. And underneath in the long meadow grass are birds-foot trefoil and self-heal.
And meadow brown butterflies everywhere.
