Hawthorn flowers with amazing plump pink anthers! Flowers from some of the hawthorn trees here on the farm have this type of alluring anther, while flowers from some of the other trees have rather drab anthers (also shown in this photo). I think there are several different species of hawthorn in the stand, with varying leaf shape and flower and fruit characteristics.
I’m working on making my tinctures more accesible so that I can play with them and get to know more deeply their tastes and actions. I’m so blissed out on the clear bottles! Putting medicines in clear bottles rather than amber ones means that I’ll have to be more careful about keeping them out of the light, but to me it’s worth it to get the extra dose of color, the beauty medicine.
