Gorse - a haven for wildlife, a graveyard for golf balls!

This is a close up of the yellow you can see on all my golf course pictures - GORSE!

 

Gorse is an evergreen shrub found all over coastal sand dune areas of Western Europe. It is has very sharp spikes instead of leaves, but throughout late April and May bursts into the most incredibly vibrant yellow colour as it flowers and lends an almost vanilla like scent to the air.
