    It's gorse. Did you try sniffing it? Quite perfumed, bit like pineapple.
    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.

    Called Furze down here,  there’s a saying ‘When Gorse is in Season, Kissings in reason’
    meaning it’s almost always blooming. 
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    Pina Colada ;)

    If you can keep your head, while those around you are losing theirs, you may not have grasped the seriousness of the situation.
