The Daffodil field

The Daffodil field looking sadly overgrown, and swamped with North American Fireweed.

I'm certainly not the only person who remembers the daffodil field as it used to be. What a shame the daffies have been smothered!
As a matter of interest, who owns the Daffodil field?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder;I have seen it looking worse. The daffodils still flower as the Willow Herb doesn't really wake up until they are finished. I believe it is still owned by Major Phipps;that is who I leased it from and who had the wall repaired a few years ago.I may be wrong but I believe he is a relative of the Ross family who sold the estate to the Nightingales. Andrew Smith harrowed it for me when I was planning to keep a pony in there but the underlying ground cover is brambles which simply enjoyed the trim they got!
