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

Bravest of the brave!

Look what I found hiding in the Woodland Border!!!  Can this mean that winter is nearing its end?  What a joy to find loads of clumps of these little beauties pushing up in the darkest and wettest of winters!  I so wish I didn't have such difficulties photographing snowdrops!  The bright white of their petals means that they're always over exposed even in dull and shady conditions.
