Hawthorn

Druid Life

Despite the drought this summer ā€“ or perhaps because of it ā€“ the hawthorn berries are especially luscious. Iā€™m not sure I remember ever seeing them this plump.

As the autumn progresses, that bright red will fade to a duskier shade, as berries are striped from branches by birds, rodents and squirrels. Perhaps this abundance will help keep creatures alive in the coming months. I have no sense of how badly the wild beings were hit by the summer heatwave, but my feeling is that we lost far too many of them.
