                  Here on this small Irish island, the verges are left untouched for the most. A neighbour has a few cattle and walks them along the lanes sometimes. And sometimes in high summer a little is done.

                  But at this time, I see new wild flowers whenever I am out. On the drive here, today, scabious and in the ditch, water forget me not join the various buttercups and tall grasses.

                  And even if they trimmed the lanes, there are many boreens which are never touched. Honeysuckle, convolvulus etc.

                  In spring the gorse is a golden glory. and white with bramble blossom now

                        The verges are snowy with bramble blossom. Every year a glut! And the rose hedging is colouring with hips. Flowery fruit.
