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

Mists and Cobwebs

It was one of those mornings when as soon as I looked outside, I reached for the camera and rushed out into the garden.  Mist, cobwebs, dew dripping off leaf tips and hazy sunshine.  As if that wasn't enough; robins were singing in the trees and jays screaming across the orchards down in the valley.  Within an hour, the sun was shining, the mist melted away and the cobwebs regained their cloaks of invisibility.  The trouble is, as soon as they do that, it's impossible not to walk into them and then they stick to your face!  They're just everywhere!!  More cobwebs can be seen at:
