Burren in Bloom episode 1

I have taken pictures of the Burren before, while it captured its lunar like landscape, they did not capture its beauty in bloom.  While it looks grey and uninteresting, a walk and a closer look reveals some of the reason its a World Heritage site. The first few are shots of the landscape, for more see here and here.
In the cracks there is a variety of plants that thrive in this windswept and wave battered area, some plants found here are unique to this area.
