Blossoming yarrow

Yarrow, or Achillea millefolium, is a common wildflower in Iceland. 
You see it in colours ranging from white to bright pink, often growing side by side.

Yarrow is a medicinal plant and its Icelandic name, Vallhumall (meaning "field hops") reflects its former use in the brewing of ale.
