The gardens of 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!

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!
