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

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!
