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

More HDR Photography in the Garden

Dahlia Bishop of York


The HDR photography addiction is far from cured and I couldn't resist posting this piccie of a Dahlia in the top lawn border taken just after a vicious squall.  This was a plant purchased from David Austin roses (of all places) last year.  It survived the winter stored perfectly dry in the cart shed and not in sand or peat.  In fact not following Monty's advice at all.
