Hello! Last week I went out one beautiful afternoon with my eldest and their fancy camera and we shot some brilliant photos! The focus was a pattern called Gorse Cowl which I always wanted it to be photographed in front of gorse bushes in their prime and every year I seemed to miss the moment - until now!!
I wish you could've been with us that day in the sunshine, surrounded by the heady aroma of gorse - it was truly wonderful. The dog came with us, so did my youngest and my eldest's fiance and we all tried to describe what the smell was like - coconut and freshly baked cake we decided. However, my eldest is one of those people who can't smell gorse. Apparently it's a thing, some people simply can not smell it. Such a shame, they're really missing out. Can you smell it?
