Protected by spines,
gorse bush stands invincible
Haha…nothing like that prickly gorse to keep those pesky pillagers away – weve got some at the end of our front garden 😉 So much beauty around just now, and I have to tell you Sarah, ever since I commented on your wild primrose, I’ve seen loads of it all around the countryside, growing on verges, everywhere! As if they all suddenly came out at once, and just so gorgeous! Daffodils too still so prolific. A gorgeous spring to behold. Have a lovely week…I’ll reply asap 🙂 xxxx
I have loads of shrubs with yellow flowers in bloom in my garden just now, although there are touches of Spring blue flowers coming into bloom this week. I took some photos of my first forget-me-nots, periwinkles, and bluebells this morning. Perhaps my Wordless Wednesday will be a display of happy blues 🙂 You have a lovely week, too, Sherri. xxxx

Thank you Sarah and heading over there now 🙂 xxxx
I’m saving the blue flowers until next week’s Wordless Wednesday, Sherri, as I have something else blue today, of an environmental nature. (On my high horse!) xxxx
Oh this took me right back to the 1960’s when we lived close to a park where gorse bushes abounded. 🙂 Beautiful post, Sarah.
So glad to have triggered a glorious memory for you, Sylvia 🙂 The gorse bushes abound close to where I live, too, but on hills rather than on low ground.
The gorse bushes are luminous at the moment, thorns filled with beauty!
They certainly are luminous. They were even managing to glow through some low cloud swathing the South Downs the other day!
I love the idea of plants defending themselves which of course they do!! Lovely image too.
Thank you, Cybele. Gorse is amazing as it defends itself against unwanted creatures, yet flashes bright at the bees!
Here’s a video of bees gathering gorse pollen at the end of the winter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHdoABM7bc8
So happy I came across your blog via a mutual blogger! I love the eclectic feel of it and am really enjoying your writing and photography. Looking forward to reading more! 🙂
Thank you, Christina. I’m so happy that you’ve called my blog eclectic, as this was my aim when I started it. The photography part improved, after Mister gave me a Nikon camera. For the first year, either I had to rely on photographs taken on a rather archaic camera, or finding free images on line, which made posting stuff exceedingly long-winded.
Thanks for following me. I’ve just started following your blog, too 🙂
Looking forward to many convos to come! 🙂
