And there’s blossom already underfoot (careful where you tread!). Here are some pics of the wild daffodils at Vell Mill Meadow, which is also (since 2011) an orchard, near Dymock.
It’s a Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust Reserve, primarily for being one of the best local daffodil meadows (for which the area is famous).
But it’s also perfect for an orchard so GWT planted it up 10 years ago, with wide-spacing to keep the daffodil interest.
There’s a mix of local varieties of apple, pear and plum.
Pears and plums will be flowering very soon…
