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 Glory of Acers

Acer palmatum Var. dissectum Seiryu
Acer Palmatum Var. Bloodgood.
I KNOW I keep wittering on and on about colour but just check out these colours and bear in mind that these untouched photos were taken on a dark, dank and dismal day!  It's so cheery having such fiery colours outside the windows when the weather is so miserable.  Imagine how they look when the sun is shining!
