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! This began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but, above all, demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers

Day & Night in the Herb Garden

For about 5 years, I've had this big old mirror sitting in the studio catching dust and then I came up with an idea.  A day and night symmetry theme in the Herb Garden..... and some help from a certain Chris Genever!  Blog followers will know that the stained glass was an original feature in the Herb Garden - as was the niche.  Anyway, this is what we came up with!  A frame to match the stained glass and, with a bit of fiddling, some matching stick on lead work.  Hey presto - a day and night theme!

'Mirror, mirror on the wall...'

Night & Day!!
