The new spring gorse is flowering right now and it is lovely – such a bright and vibrant golden-yellow. Common gorse is a large, evergreen shrub, covered in needle-like leaves and distinctive, coconut-perfumed, yellow flowers during the spring and summer. You will find it on the windy, open moors all around the UK.
And when the sky is blue there is no better contrasting colour. Though, perhaps because the temperature is still rather low, I could not discern any noticeable coconut perfume when I very carefully reached out to have a sniff.
Whilst we are confined to #StayAtHome I will be posting photos from around my house and garden to hopefully cheer us all up.
