Hawthorn blooms

Hawthorn trees have beautiful flowers. 
But it seems to me they only last
for about 10 minutes every season.
The rest of the year they are sort of a prickly mess.
I had a Hawthorn tree in my back yard 
and ended up replacing it with a coral maple.
I do miss those sweet, brief blooms.

Luckily, my neighbor has a renegade Hawthorn 
sprouting through the fence between our yards.
So, I snipped off a few sprigs (on my side of the fence!)
to enjoy indoors before
the blooms fade.

Very pink and pretty!
