Rathfinny Wine Estate

Day at the Races

Our grassland banks on the southern edge of the Estate are really coming alive with colour (and sounds and scents).  This is the wonderful yellow flower of the Horseshoe vetch – a much needed food source for many species of bee and butterfly.

The smaller elliptical leaf in this image is the Salad burnet – which can be eaten and is supposed to be cucumber like in taste.  However, I would not condone any foraging or eating of any flower or plant unless you’re 100% confident.
