At this time of year the glowing spires of Rose Bay Willow Herb pop up everywhere. There are great swathes of them along the Gower Coastal Path

If the sky is wonderfully caught, the flowers are fantastic. A beautiful shot.

Lovely shot- moody clouds, with gentle flowers. Have you ever held one of their ripe seed cases? The heat of your open hand causes the pod to explode, scattering the seeds up to 10 feet away. Leaves your hand smelling odd though

@CElliottUK: Will try it at the first opportunity :)
