Gill & Jim Young are Scottish and have come with me on many exciting flower-filled adventures over the past years, including several walks on Table Mountain.
When Gill saw my most recent post about the heathers in Belgium, she sent me
I took this photo of a heather moorland near our house last Saturday. The moorland is used for grouse shooting which began on August
12th. A section of the moor is burned every year to encourage the young shoots.
I was wondering whether this is also the common heather (Calluna vulgaris).
It certainly is beautiful and explains why the Scots are so proud of their heather.
