Hawthorn blossoms

By pentaxpatty
Good afternoon,

Huge thank you for all your wonderful comments, votes and very special user awards for Ethan's crocodile cake. I hope that he will like it too, this weekend for his party.
Thank you to Martin, Danny (Dannbran) Trev, Joan, Colleen, Kate (IrishKate) Isabel(chinga) Dave (ugly) Jo (Jocas) John (lifesnapper) thank you all so very much.

Some Hawthorn from the garden.
There are twisted hawthorn trees,
Thick set with buds, as clear and pale,
As golden water or green hail,
As if a storm of rain had stood,
Enchanted in the thorny wood,
And, hearing fairy voices call,
Hung poised, forgetting how to fall.
Green rain, by Mary Webb .

Hope that you are having a good day

Love and light Patty xxSmileSmile
