Golden rewards

The last couple of weeks has been an explosion of gold at Kings Weston and rich reward for our efforts in clearing below the viewing terrace the last few months of 2013. A bit of an unconventional before-and-after to remind you what the scene was just in December and what it looked like on a sunny Saturday just three months later. The daffodils had been planted in about 1994 by the Kingsweston Preservation Society, but had been engulfed by brambles and lost. They have certainly made up for lost time this year!
