New York: one woman, one garden, twelve seasons.
We planted a hawthorn in our front garden here in Flatbush because as friend put it," they have a display for every season." But I haven't seen any others in my travels around Flatbush and Ditmas Park. I was astonished to see the hawthorns on Lenox Ave while traveling to NY Marathon brunch this Sunday. And envious of the strong showing of the beautiful berries. Our poor little tree doesn't nearly as many.
Are there thorns on that hawthorn? I can't see any. The wild ones we have in our woods upstate are loaded with them. Maybe a different variety?
