GORSE AND BROOM

Gorse and broom are two plants which were brought to Scotland by settlers back in the 1800s.  They grow wildly and are havens for pests – so not everyone is that excited about the plant-bearing immigrants. (See yellow flowers in the picture.)

However, someone did write a poem about the broom  –

WHEN THE BROOM IS OUT OF BLOOM

THE LOVE IS OUT OF TUNE.

Not sure about the romanticism in basing your love on weeds, but so be it.

A sign along the highway – End of dual carriageway.

August 12th – called The Glorious Twelfth is grouse hunting day in Scotland.

Sign – No articulated vehicles. (A vehicle such as a double semi that can bend to make turns.)

Back of menu – Make haste to return.

Instead of signs saying to “watch your head” – they say “mind your head.
