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!

Spotted Orchid Spotted!


Spotted in our own little orchard!  I reckon it could be our  native wild Heath Spotted Orchid (Dactylorhiza maculata).  My policy is never knowingly to mow a Cowslip before July: now, I have another specimen to avoid!
