Prickly but otherwise almost invisible for the rest of the year despite its presence on almost any scrap of wasteland, at this time of year the Blackthorn is simply a delight. The flowers arrive before the leaves unlike the related Hawthorn which won't be in flower for a few weeks yet. The bark is also somewhat darker (hence its name). Canon EOS 5D
