A Washington Hawthorn


These are some SERIOUS thorns on this Washington Hawthorn tree. We have one in our front near our dining room window. It is not a tree you want out in the yard or where someone could unwittingly walk into or onto one of these thorns!

  5. Washington Hawthorns are nasty for children. We took ours down because we were afraid the children would fall into it.

  13. I've never seen anything like it. Where are my pruning shears? I hope birds don't get too close either.
