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!

....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!
