My April Challenge - Day 17

Wind, sun and heavy showers. Typical April weather today.

Today's offering is, I think, Blackthorn. It is not exactly in my garden but hanging over the garden fence from the field on the other side. I was rather pleased with this shot. It is amazing how different these blossoms can be. This one is quite delicate but I love the red-tipped stamens.

Terrific photo. I am building a wildlife garden myself and may incorporate some Blackthorn. Very much enjoying your site, thanks!

Many thanks for commenting. Glad you like the photo.

Blackthorn has another advantage if you like wildlife - badgers love sloes. We often see them in the lane in the late summer eating the fruit.
