Genuine Scottish Heather!

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

the following:

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.
