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

Wild & Really Wildlife

Down by the pond.

There are dragonflies at the bottom of our garden! 

OK - so there are lots around the pond and some of them are really big and sound more like Chinooks but there's one dragon fly whose home is at the end of the Fernery Path and he sits on the hammock arch in silence whilst drifting around in the breeze and balancing on his nose.  We encourage all sorts of dragonflies here!
