It’s a dull mid-January day in Anderton Country Park. All the vegetation seems dormant, apart from the brilliant yellow of the occasional gorse bush in flower. Not a huge mass of colour, but enough to brighten the spirits at this time of year, and gives a nice composition.


This is presumably a Common Gorse, which flowers roughly from January to June. This seems to complement the Western Gorse, which flowers late summer and autumn (also Dwarf Gorse). As a result, you can see Gorse flowering in Britain most of the year round.
