Field of Heather



This 200 year old Field of Heather is very special at the moment.
It's located 1/2 way through our walk at
Point Pleasant Park.
The blooms and fragrance are 'out of this world' now.


Sitting still during this capture was all right this time....


but last fall there was nothing keeping me from 
getting Mr. O back from this dastardly duo.


Even whispering sweet nuthin's wasn't going to 
make him relinquish Mr. O


Ah HA...look who's got him back....
that took stealth and cunning...
my kind of manouevres.


When are we going back there again, guys?

  4. I've never seen or smelled a field of heather but it's only fitting that you have it in "New Scotland."

    1. Yes, Nouvelle-Ecosse or New Scotland or as we love to breath Nova Scotia. You must inhale the sweet ether of the blooms. The heather is prolific this year thanks to you know who...Mama Nature!

  6. I would want to go back there too, away from all this heat. Tell daddy Ron that I finally figured out his other template, just before he changed back. I like this better though.

    1. Yes, I remember you successful gaining access to the Dynamic View...I had another 2 peeps have problems on their iPads and iPhones so being such a great and loyal 'doodle I made it easy for them, just like before. This layout seems so much easier...the Dynamic View was kitschy but tedious.

  7. Just to let everyone know that 'Soph' is so correct about the scent of Heather everywhere......it was mesmerizing.

  8. Oh, I love heather. But so do bees. And bees and I don't play well together. So, virtual admiration is best for me. Great photos contrasting the seasons!

    1. Yes, 200 years...the story is that the soldiers who came from overseas had heather stuffed in the mattress and when they shook them out they spread the seeds all over!

    Have you ever heard of the "Daily Dog Challenge" on Flickr? I used to participate daily before K got so sick. I'm getting back in the swing of it. I can send you the link if you're interested.

  20. Sophie, you had a bit of a crazed look in your eyes when you got back Mr. O. Who can blame you? I'd have that look, too. That is a gorgeous field of heather, and it must smell like heaven. Maybe if I put my nose up really close to the screen I'll be able to smell it. What do you think? :)

    1. I certainly believe if you put your nose nice and close you'll definitely smell something...it may not be heather but it'll be something! lol

    I love them.
    And I love the heather too,
