Rally - Blooming signs
Signs are growing that something is about to bloom in Berwickshire. A rather unusual shrub has been spotted flowering on selected verges. Each plant appears to have a single bare stem supporting one rather large but colourful petal. The petal design is so precise it looks more man-made than natural, but the new blooms have certainly been catching folks' attention. However, petal pluckers are asked not to interfere with nature and leave these fragile blooms alone, at least until after the 2nd of June when they will start to wilt.
