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.

Frosty Ferns




     
On a rare day without rain I tip toed out with the camera to take a few snaps of Jack Frost. As they were covered in rime, the ferns caught my eye but actually, everything looked altogether more cheerful!  After so many dark and wet days - a touch of hoar frost and a hint of mist brings out the artist in us all!
