  2. It looks like it needs some rain. I feel like if I fall on that cliff, I will die of thorns and cuts. But to look at it, it's beautiful!

  3. Pure nature on its best Bill.

  4. I wonder if it's died naturally or if it's being controlled for some reason.

    It is very wild.

  7. Hello, I have never heard of gorse, I guess it wasn't meant to be.
    Enjoy your day!

  8. The plant is not good against cold and frost, perhaps therefore died.
    Have a good day, Bill!

    But sunny, so, to a nice arvo, Bill :-)

  10. It would be hard to try to walk through that.

  11. So sad! It's beautiful when it's not dead!

  12. Interesting looking. Looks hard and scratchy like you wouldn't want to walk through it. Never heard of if before.

  13. Looks ghostly. And I bet scratchy as all get out.

  14. I don't think I've ever seen dead gorse, I'm so used to seeing it in bloom.
    But I did a google search and discovered that Gorse is relatively short-lived (up to 25 years) you can read more on the RSPB site

    All the best Jan

  15. What happened? My children loved the gorse, playing hide and seek. Why, I have no idea.

    1. Looked like it just dried up and died. There were a few more of these on the trail that we were walking on. All the other gorse was doing fine and blooming.

  16. Olá Bill!
    Uns caules um pouco secos.
    Tal como muitos de nós andamos hoje em dia.
    Que tudo volte a florir.
    Um abraço mágico.🙅

  17. There are many native plant proponents who might say the only good gorse is dead gorse.

  18. Looks dead but wait it a small piece might rise from below :)

  19. But still looks wonderful! Take care

  20. One of the bushes I've most admired when visiting the Emerald Isle.

  21. Now I have learned something new, Bill, because I didn't know that gorse was before I saw this post and looked it up!
