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).

  3. 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 :)

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

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

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

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