Daffodil Garden Path Cat

When first planting Middle Garden I included lots of small daffodil and tulip groups - a local bulb farm provided large bags for mass planting. The dull orange spikey plant behind the unfurling tulips is the New Zealand native called Libertia.

The clumps and groups of spring daffodils are still here, but I'm forever slicing into them with my digger when weeding, or standing on them in winter. Or worse - turning their patch of ground into a path! The tulips are lost.
