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

....and some people complain about seagulls!

We have a pigeon in the garden.  Not any pigeon.  This pigeon.  It is the fattest, most stupid, cheeky, brazen and lazy bird in the entire universe!  It took me ages to scare it enough into flying for this weird shot and then it just landed again nearby - glaring at me with serious attitude.  It spends every day eating and copulating (mostly in the Wisteria) - noisily!
