First in Dorset. Now West Yorkshire - Mostly Halifax . . . Getting to know the place.
Love your picture! It reminds me when I was a kid before leaving Portugal which is my native country and where there were many of those thorny plants! I wouldn't go too close though;o)Thanks for sharing;o)***Have a nice week****
Is it true that gorse is always in bloom?
Hello Mildred. Gorse always seems exotic - even when it is ordinary and everyday. The colour is bold and it smells like coconut sunblock in the summer! Instant holiday atmosphere.Hello Toffeeapple. I don't know if it's a scientific fact that gorse is always in flower but there's quite a lot round here and there do seem always to be gorse flowers. Not that each, separate bush flowers non-stop. I don't know how they decide between them which will maintain the show from month to month!
Thanks for your response Lucy.
I've heard of it but now I know what it looks like. I didn't know it smelled so nice either :O)
I've NEVER heard of this before. thanks!
Hello Country Mouse and Pat. I hadn't realised gorse isn't everywhere. Silly, I know - but while it's obvious why some plants might be very localised, others just seem so . . . so . . . universal. Not that gorse grows in any old place even here but I think everyone knows about it.I love it - and you have given me reason to do a Loose and Leafy post on it some time!http://looseandleafy.blogspot.com/
