The gardens of Pear Tree Cottage sit in a cider apple orchard in the green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England. It enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury & 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!

PHEW - rain at last!

The last time we enjoyed rain was 24 June 2011 - nearly 9 whole weeks ago!  No wonder most of the grass is brown and it's looking like autumn.  The national press have already printed pictures of trees in their autumn livery.  The maples, hazels and birch trees are all changing colour here too.
