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!

Too shrine-like?

The Androlia niche has now been treated with a special undercoat and finished off with about 5 coats of sandtex.  it's held in position with string temporarily and I need to find something suitable to stand in it.  I did try a vase but, it looked more like an ash filled urn.  Al came up with this particular alternative!  Well, one tries one's level best to live up to one's reputation!  Sadly, Chris's finials are in deep shadow. In reality they look very Egyptian.
