Usefulness and services of the tree :
Features and characters of the individual
This hawthorn has rather curious surroundings. It grows alone on bare ground, between a sandy alley and a boules/pétanques terrain. It stands in the walkway a little. One of the wooden beams has been placed at the foot of the tree. Obviously, this tree found itself in the way; it has been severely trimmed but ultimately spared. No doubt because its little white flowers, with their springtime fragrance. Its little red fruits in autumn are also very much enjoyed. Or, maybe, no one dared to cut it down, because supposedly whoever does so risks disrespecting the fairies living inside, leading to very bad luck. Who knows? Maybe the fairies also like to play pétanque!
