    Gorse

    I love to take in the scent of the flowering Gorse in late May and early June. It is at that time that it gives off a delicate yet very distinctive vanilla/coconut perfume – a wonderful intoxication. I also gather the flower heads at this time and use them to produce a very fine light wine that retains the distinctive perfume.
