Flowers of the Borders

There were undulating stands of wild yellow gorse everywhere. Note the mounds of it on the hills in the distance. Up close, it is rather prickly. We also saw many sheep grazing in the meadows and lots of cuddly lambs but it never seemed to be convenient to get their photos.

Daffodils were bountiful, even in the car parks. There were also beds of tulips, primroses, and pansies.

View looking beyond to the Galloway Hills (I think). It was beginning to rain so I'm glad I took the photos before we spent time in the Ice Cream Factory/Amusement Park.

You know...I didn't realize that I didn't know what gorse was until I saw this post. Seems odd given how many of my books mentions it.

Thanks for sharing some more beautiful pictures!
