The boughs, twisted like caked with morning frost

Spiral overhead in snowflake mazes

A thousand piece jigsaw with no edges

Dead leaves whirl in forgotten corners

Knocked loose by the endless harvest

Left to rot in the Indian Summer

No sunset for the Orchard

Where fruit is always in season

Some fascinating images here: "snowflake mazes" - and the ideas of an endless harvest and sunset that never comes. What is the exact subject that gives rise to these images? What kind of orchard is this?
