Blackthorn, a dark tree with a creamy blossom




















































In it's winter guise it is dark and foreboding and has a deep and bitter fruit but look at it's spring buds and flowers! A delicate, sweet and creamy blossom, the first wild flowers now to be seen on every hedge and ditch.

It's very possible that no one ever notices the magic of the Blackthorn's productions, winter or summer. That doesn't stop the year in, year out high drama of it. The Blackthorn doesn't look for any feedback!

It just keeps on doing what it does, and goes on being what it is, a Blackthorn tree.

  2. What a beautiful flower on a gnarly branch...seems to show even those with a rather unseemly appearance or outlook do have those lovely qualities if we look...just shows my mom and dad were right (as I knew) but it applies to plants as well!

  6. I love the threatening name, just so wonderful and scary and full of all kinds of dark images but then you show me these sweet blooms--it's just another big guy with a soft heart!

  9. Beautiful photos of the Blackthorn Tree. "The Blackthorn doesn't look for any feedback! It just keeps on doing what it does, and goes on being what it is, a Blackthorn tree". This might be a good attitude to take on for human beings, too! Happy Spring to you!
