Another Hawthorn

This Hawthorn is not showing the same colour as the previous Hawthorn despite being dug from a similar location and probably being of similar age (and size) as the previous one but none the less it is still attractive in its yellow hues.

This tree has been extensively worked over recent years and the next phase is due in a few weeks, as soon as the leaves fall. It has a remarkable hollow trunk from being in a bush fire and the trunk movement is from floods, so a hard start to life has given it many characteristics that are beautiful in bonsai terms.

The next phase will be to bring all the foliage in closer to the trunk and to also highlight the hollow of the trunk which I think is the trees main feature.

Hawthorn Showing Autumn Colour

In my garden the autumn colour this year has been patchy but this large Hawthorn looks good with the yellow and orange tones. This tree has improved over the last couple of years and is one of my favorites. Hope you enjoy the colour as much as I do.
