Features and characters of the individual
The benches are well placed for viewing this hawthorn. The spiralling movement of its trunk is spectacular. This species already rouses the imagination amongst many, but this trunk adds an air of mystery too. How can a trunk have such a pretty spiralling shape and form? Was it the fairies that live inside it, or the wind? Perhaps this little tree has a feminine nature, sensitive to the moon’s pull or the rotation of the earth? It’s a good place to sit and think about this curious, natural phenomenon.
