The green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England, is home to the cider apple orchards which surround the gardens of Pear Tree Cottage. They enjoy a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury and Abberley clock tower. The Teme Valley lies just over the hill and, not far away, is the Herefordshire border. Although our climate is temperate, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener!

Sunny Easter Sunday.
It's really looking like spring despite the frosty nights. Some of the the daffodils are bowing their heads after the gales and heavy rains but it's nice to see the Prunus in flower and the Euonymous has put on a lot of growth considering they were only planted the first week in February. Rain forced us to retreat to the greenhouse and work pricking out Chris's Stocks has been done instead of laying the York stone flag path. We did manage to do some more planting around the pond and used the turf to finish off by the Pear gate.
