I walked through the sea of heather on the front of this eco-friendly greeting card during a hike up Great Crag in the Lake District National Park.
“As I gradually gain altitude, the bracken lessens and the profusion of heather increases, creating an unbroken sea of pinks and purples. I zoom in on a stem. Minute, pale pink flowers, like micro-sized lilies, throng its length, overwhelming the green of the rudimentary leaves.
The neighbouring shrub must be a different variety, for each flower’s magenta-toned petals are fused to form a hollow, egg-shaped, polyp-like chamber that houses the precious reproductive organs within. The flowers do not reside along the length of the stalk but instead teem around the terminus.” —from ‘A Sea of Heather‘.
