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

Stepping up in the world

An Ajuga has crept across the stone steps which lead to the garden tool shed.  The little blue flower spikes stand up proud and appear to be thriving on dire poverty as there is no soil on the stone.  It softens the hard edges of the stone so, for now, we'll leave it to keep on creeping!
