Two Shades of Pink

This evening I suggested to Nigel that we make the most of the lovely spring evening and visit Gore to check out hawthorn blossom at Hamilton Park. Here’s two of my photos, showing two shades of pink blossom on adjacent trees – deep pink and light pink. Gore, Southland.

Click on either photo to enlarge.


fyi – I’ve taken photos of hawthorn blossom here before, 11 November 2018. If you’d like to see them here’s the link: Hawthorn Blossom

  1. I enjoy seeing white hawthorn blossom in spring but the pink hawthorn blossom is especially pretty. The colour can rival any other spring blossom!

    1. When all the pretty blossom fade away, along comes hawthorn and saves the day! Hey Ann.. I learned a new word on Twitter today and I believe it comes from Scotland … outwith. An excellent word!

      1. LOL, Liz – you’ve just taught me something new! Outwith is a very useful word but I’d never realised that it was from Scotland! 🙂 (Must go back to Twitter sometime – I haven’t been there in ages.)

    1. It was lovely! Local countryside looking pretty as many farms have hawthorn trees scattered across the landscape or as hedges. Usually white blossom but often there’s varying shades of pink mixed in with the white.
