Where I walk/run near my home the heath is covered in gorse and heather.
Today I was struck by a very strong smell of coconut from the bright yellow gorse flowers. Can anyone remember whether Ransome mentions gorse? I seem to think he does, but maybe it's in Scotland (GN) not the Lakes books?
I know the purple of the heather is mentioned a few times. It really can turn an entire hillside purple with its tiny flowers.
