Whins


A corner of Ballinrees Reservoir with whin bushes in the background. Whins - otherwise known as gorse - are a common sight on poor quality land.
The bright yellow flowers, at their best from March to May, are always a cheerful sight on dull spring days.
They look good on bright, sunny days too!

They make a great contrast to that beautiful blue water.

That was one of the few days this spring when we had a clear blue sky to reflect on the water!
