Taken on a foggy morning. Apart from being a great ornamental addition to the garden, heather, also known as common heather, ling, or calluna vulgaris, grows easily and anywhere, all year long. Because our pink heather tends to be of the low-height (spreading) variety, we also use it to keep the pesky weeds at bay. 🙂
Some flora look especially gorgeous when their petals are unopened. These bedewed specimens are waiting for the warming touch of spring to open. Apparently, heather can also be a food for birds, butterflies, deer and sheep, but I won’t be sampling it any time soon.
