Paths through the Daffodils.

The paths between the  daffodils and jonquils in The Old Orchard  are becoming more clearly defined each year as the bulbs multiply. 

These paths, important structural components of the design of the orchard, are a seasonal feature, changing in Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn.

The paths will be kept mown through to December by which time the foliage of the bulbs has died down and the entire orchard can be slashed and kept short for the summer fruit picking season.  In late autumn, the fruit trees become dormant,  the bulbs re-emerge and we return to mowing only the paths.
