Crataegus monogyna - éénstijlige meidoorn

Hawthorn Tree - the May birth tree - It symbolizes hope because it signals the return of Spring and Summer. Maypoles used to be made of hawthorn.

There is a tradition in Ireland that a single Hawthorn growing in the middle of a field is a faerie tree, as the Hawthorn was seen in Celtic mythology as a gateway to the otherworld. I know from the picture that it looks like two trees but its all from the one root. Irish faeries or 'Sidhe' in Irish, differ completely to the Hollywood vision of Leprechauns, they are not all small, dress in green and are cute with an Oirish accent.
