Today is the start of #BiodiversityWeek. We will kickstart the week with a celebration of the fabulous #hawthorn - an Sceach Gheal, coming into full bloom at the moment. Also called Whitethorn, Quickthorn, The May Tree. One Hawthorn Tree growing by itself may be a fairy tree. Very aptly the Irish name, An Scheach Gheal, means the Bright or Light Bush.
