Heath

A heath is an area of flattish, uncultivated land with low shrubs. Heath can also be used to describe those shrubs and is generally used for Erica or Calluna (types of heather).

Looks like a heath cliff in the distance!

Now I'm hungry for a Heath candy bar.

ha...didn't know we had heaths in Florida

Nicola said...

As a child, we often visited Scotland for our holiday and I remember the heaths. I was even shorter then and used to graze the heather with my hand. Fond memories :)

Arizona has vast amounts of heaths, except they are covered with sagebrush, creosote bushes, and manzanita.

We have lots of sagebrush heath here in Wyoming also. Why did someone mention a Heath bar? Now I want one too.

Also a prime minister.

Ha! Just a little one. Maggie.

Patsy said...

Never heard of them, Alex.

Patsy said...

I'm guessing you call them something different, Mac.

Patsy said...

I hope to be visiting some of them later this year, Nicola.

Patsy said...

That sounds aromatic, Oscar.

Patsy said...

Now I want to know what they are. If I discover them I'll be forced to eat one for research purposes.

Patsy said...

And a former colleague of mine, Rosemary (no relation as far as I know).

You can wander for miles on some heath-land, Patsy. It's also popular with sheep.

I really like heathers but I wish they had more of a perfume.

After a nice rain, it is.

Patsy said...

I do wander for miles sometimes, Carol.

Patsy said...

Not would make them even nicer, Liz.
