White blooms on a Hawthorn for Easter

Abuzz with bees and enticingly fragrant, this Hawthorn (genus Crataegus) near Central & Fell is having a big, beautiful bloom. Wiki has great info about the ethnobotany of Hawthorns, such as the supposition that they were the source of Jesus's crown of thorns.
