autumn berries

I believe this is a hawthorn tree. The berries are so bright and beautiful at this time of year.

    So strange, in Swedish this is a whole other kind of berries – hagthorne, and hawthorne is an orange berry with thin long olive green leaves. I had no idea the same name could be used to two completely different species in different languages. Never the less this picture is so lovely!

    We call it hawthorn too – what a great photo though. I often try and take photos of the berries because they are so nice – but nothing like this beautiful shot!

    Very nice photo. We call it Hawthorn. Sadly I have the white variety that tens to smell bad after the flowers are dying. I believe the red variety doesn’t have that smell.

    Hawthorn where I live; and the berries are called haws. Did your plant have huge thorns? The wild versions often do, whereas the ornamental ones often do not. Lovely shot.
