Garden Walk
of Bark & Limbs in Winter

Russian Hawthorn



Here's a photo of one of the hawthorns' grey bark
snapped during a Snowy Week in January.
Most of our several hawthorns grow as small trees with
one or two main trunks, but this one's a multi-trunked
fountaining shrub. Its autumn berries last into winter,
but by January have in general turned black & dropped
from the branches, or else been stolen away by birds
which like them after a couple freezes sweetens them up.


Here it is again, snapped the same minute in January
but from the opposite side. Only slightly visible in
the first photo through the grey branches, in this pic the
evergreen leaves of the Rhododendron Lee's Best Purple
share the frame most appealingly amidst the snowfall.
