A glorious day again today, but a short walk because of it being too busy at weekends. Glad to see another plant in flower this morning and what a beauty. There are several Broom (Cytisus) shrubs growing around Shipley Park, most of which are the common Broom (Cytisus scoparius) and look a bit like a spineless Gorse. The bright, yellow flowers are very similar as they are both typical members of the Pea family. This morning however, we came across this variation of the shrub, with beautiful, deep orange-red colouring on the alae (or wings) of the corolla (flower).
