  1. Beautiful shot. So nice to see this - the stuff of childhood for me growing up in the UK. I grew up on the south coast and there were huge swathes of it near the beach that I'd spend time in watching the birds. Of interest is that it is also now here in Australia and has benefited from being a plant that regenerates well after fire, the seeds too, also benefit from a slight scorching! So you can imagine it's taken off here rather too well and is now on weed lists for many States. Posted 7 days ago
