European Gorse – coconut heaven

When I last blogged it was Winter and I was surrounded by the coconut scent of European Gorse. Now it’s Summer (in blog land, that’s oh dear where have I been). I am about to embark on painting Western Gorse’s summer yellow haze, and very soon, more words (and probably images) on Winter, Summer and Gorse will follow and you’ll see why I’ve been gone so long.
