|Hawthorn in winter, Maine|
She lives in a hedge row in the fields below my house, wedged between her kin, and apple, cherry and maple trees. There are grape vines growing up into the trees. Probably another 10 to 15 hawthorns in this hedge row- of small and large stature, they grow as multiple limbed small brushy trees, with 3-7 trunks, making a very tricky to penetrate thorny tangle of branches. A good place to hide. Safe. Protected.
