Is there any brighter, more welcome shade of green than the new, fresh, unwilted and unweathered leaf of springtime hawthorn, transforming the hedgerows into winter-ending walls of life, promising brilliant white flowers in May and bright red berry clusters later in the year?

The reassuring vivid freshness of this modest plant brings timely cheer out of all proportion to its stature.
