The gardens at 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!

Garden Personnel Move

Easter Island Man
Martley Hillside
Easter Island Man got a new home last week and has moved from the tool shed down to a new slate platform made from DIY salvaged Welsh slate!  Chris did all the clever stuff including making the arch around the corner over the cave entrance and hiding the nasty concrete lintel with a scalloped lead canopy.  I was entrusted with rubbing down all the mortar the following day.  I'm getting quite good at it now.  Easter Island Man gazes out towards the sunsets over Martley Hillside whilst guarding the cave entrance.
