This morning is beautiful and sunny so I went for a bit of a walk and took some photos on the way. I don't know what you call this wild flower but it is a welcome sight so early in the year.
When I was younger I used to call this a Whinn bush and Easter Flower. Well, whatever it is called, it looks good, smells better and reminds me that Easter is not far away.
When we were small, we used to be sent down the lane towards the ocean to pick the flowers off this bush on Easter Sunday/Monday. This kept us busy while the 'Easter Bunny' came to visit:-)
We would take a bag of them home and boil them in water with eggs, and after they turned yellow we would paint them and then roll them down the 'Fairy Hill'. Whoever had the egg without a crack at the end of the tumble won!
