The hawthorn tree in the front garden at Granny and Grandpa's gave me and the littlest some welcome shade yesterday and was a source of joy hundreds of insects. The tree was actually humming with activity and was wonderful just to listen to the peaceful noise and watch them all go about their buzzy business, honey bees especially seemed to love it. It was heaving with them. Trees hold a special place in my heart, I believe in the incredible power they hold. One of the reasons why we named our girls after two very powerful trees, but the Hawthorn is also another incredibly powerful tree.
