This picture was taken on January 17 and already a few where beginning to appear from the undergrowth.
As well as clearing the bracken and brambles it was decided this year that a bit of the natural regeneration would be cleared from the road side, to allow motorist the chance to see the daffodils as they are passing by.
This involved cutting back any small sycamore that had started growing and clearing any hazel stands that had started to get out of control.
This work has much improved the area and will hopefully allow some more light in to help the daffodils to flourish.
If you are around Ullswater in spring, please go down and have a look at the colorful showing. Or even better pop into the welcome building at Aira Force car park to pick up a Daffodil walk that takes you along the lake shore finishing at Wordsworth Daffodils.
