hedgerow hawthorn blossom greetings card

One in a series of greetings cards designed by Caroline using inspiration from time spent living in Hertfordshire, England. Taken from artwork created with hand carved stamps of iconic British symbols.

With a huge and ancient hawthorn hedge dividing our garden from the houses behind, the blooming of the hawthorn or mayblossom filled the garden with pretty and bubbly white flowers in late spring. A familiar honey-like perfume could be smelled outside and inside the house, attracting the bees to the mass of flowers. The blossoms are so pretty set against the very dark branches and thorns of the shrub. Later in the year deep red haws (berries) are produced by this great hedge.
