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

The creatures people have in their gardens!

Sometimes we gardeners grumble about animal damage in the garden. Here in the UK, many animals are unwelcome as they eat so many plants, shrubs and vegetables. Our friend Steve has these little creatures to deal with in his garden in Tsawwassen south of Vancouver Canada!!  I don't even know what these actually do in a garden and maybe they're not too much trouble but, I just couldn't resist putting Steve's photos of his own garden visitors on the blog!  Looks as if they might like plumbs and it would take more than rabbit wire to keep them out!

Casually agile!!
Do racoons like plumbs?
Butter definitely wouldn't melt.....!
