Zoom in on abundance

Mum saw these blackthorn bushes laden with berries the other week and suggested they would make a good topic for my zoom in and out so we made use of a beautifully sunny day to take a drive to see them.  I'm not sure why they are called blackthorn when they have orange berries - but they are stunning and I do love the colour contrast of a strong orange and blue




























I'm loving all the different ways that people are using this meme and the glimpses we are gaining into different seasons and lives.

Beautiful! I love the long view (I wish I could go for a walk along that beach!), and the close up is stunning. Such gorgeous colours!

couldn't agree with you more Helena - love that blue/orange combo!

The blue and orange are stunning. I'd love to see some color here. Everything is brown and gray!

Stunning orange against the blue sky, the blue of the sea is lovely too.

The colours are just wonderful Helena and what a fabulous pair for ZIZO. You could be in the med!
How lovely to have had an outing with your mother, and I love the way this wonderful meme is spreading out among our families. Honestly is it any wonder that I have an RSI? too much to say.

But is it Pyracantha (or Firethorn?) only I thought blackthorn had white flowers followed by black berries. Happy to be wrong
