Consequently, most of the spring flora has been held back (as well as the vegetables!), with many flowers just bursting out of their buds this week.
Here is a round up of some of the wildflowers that are decorating Enlli at the moment...some bold and brilliant, like the golden Gorse; others hidden and delicate, like the tiny blue starry Spring Squill.
The European Gorse (Ulex europeaus) has been spectacular this year, apparently a sign of a good summer to come!
