Lovely...prickly stuff, Bill, and I like your composition.
Bill Phillips: I am obliged to you
I do love the point of view - it beckons me forward to explore the rest of the path!
Bill Phillips: It leads round a rather pleasant lake
Gorse very cleverly attracts your attention with its bright yellow flowers and then, in a dastardly way, is quite capable of stabbing you with its sharp spikes.
Bill Phillips: There are people like you I hasten to add

Nicely focussed. I love the smell of Gorse because it reminds me of happy days in nice places
Bill Phillips: I associate it with my Devon childhood

Oh, I love gorse -and I remember the Dartmoor covered with gorse all over - but here we seem to be at a lake or at the sea - a fine atmospheric photo, but I would like to see a bit more.
Bill Phillips: This was in North Wales Philine and was indeed by a lake. We grew Gorse from seed many years ago when we lived in Birmingham

Gorse wine is supposed to be very good
Bill Phillips: I didn't know there was such a thing

We have gorse on our hillside - lethal stuff, I couldn't imagine having it as a snack!
Bill Phillips: sounds a lot of trouble for scant reward

Gorse wine is very nice. But it is not so nice to pick the flowers to make the wine...
Bill Phillips: Wear good gloves would probably be a plan grin Never knew there was gorse wine
Good composition Bill, I love the splash of colour Gorse provides!
I had no idea, it could be eaten smile
Bill Phillips: nor did I Martin
We have a lot of Gorse growing round our way, I used to think it only grew at the coast but now I know different.
Bill Phillips: We grew some from seed when we lived in Birmingham.
I am very glad to see this gorse close up. Over the years I have seen it here in the landscape but never close up. We do not have it here. Seeing that it is edible and tastes like coconut, I would add it to salads.
Bill Phillips: I once planted some seeds in my front garden when we lived in Birmingham and they grew.

Of gorse this is a great photo Bill.
Bill Phillips: You are sharp and to the point today Chad
Nice shot of stuff to be admired from not too close a distance smile
Bill Phillips: I am inclined to agree John!

Gorse seems to be favoured by the new Forest ponies. It seems to flower year round. Yours looks like it shot somewhere hilly.
Bill Phillips: North Wales Alan, so quite hilly
Wonderful composition Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thank you richard
Makes you want to go round the corner to see what other beauty to find Bill.
Bill Phillips: There was plenty of it Peter
Stands out well against the blue.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Graeme
