Hawthorn blossom near Midford Castle, Somerset. VR

This image has been re-mastered for Virtual Reality using a suitable viewer.

Midford Castle is really a folley. Only the super-rich live here. Nicolas Cage owned it for a while.

There are many miles of hawthorn hedges around the country. These thorny trees provide good protection for grazing animals and a safe haven for wildlife and birds. Some call it the bird-song bush. Because it flowers in May it is also called May. An old saying goes: 'Do not cast a clout till May is out' (keep wearing your winter clothes until the hawthorn blossoms.
