The gardens at Pear Tree Cottage sit in a cider apple orchard in the green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England. It enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury & 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!

Dead Pretty!

The papery petals of a dead Hydrangea (which should have been pruned) still look really pretty with the sun behind them.  Quite surprising when you think that they are surrounded by fresh spring fruit blossom and proves that dead flowers can be as just as pretty as the freshest flower.  Now I really must get around to doing some dead heading!
