Foraging on the freedom trail

What we thought was a crabapple tree on the yard surrounding the J.W. Dobbs house turns out to be a hawthorn.

These are delicious! I released a handful and ate them (because F. had spoken earlier to an urban forager who assured her they were fine. This didn't convince her to eat them, but i have no allergies or qualms, or brains.)

hawthorn blossom is white? Are you sure this is a hawthorn? I came via 'next blog' and liked what I saw.

berries are beautiful shades of red when ripe. the white ones are not ripe yet and won't fall off the branch. thanks for stopping by!
