The Hawthorn tree is strongly
associated with Faeries. It is said that when the Oak, Ash and (Haw)thorn
grow close together it is a favourite haunt of the Fey people and
that solitary Hawthorns growing on hills or near wells were considered
to be markers to the world of Faeries.
The Hawthorn is a potently
magickal tree. It long been associated with the festival of Beltaine
and is perfectly suited to use as a tool for spells connected with
love, fertility and Goddess rituals.
