~ Gorse or Whin bush its Celtic name is O~Onn and the goddess Eostar are associated with Ostara of Spring Equinox.
The thorny stems and brazen yellow flowers of the Whin bush are easily spotted across the landscapes, one of my favourite showy thorns. Welcome Spring!!
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze."
- William Wordsworth, Daffodils
~Happy spring time~
