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!

October colour

In between what seems like a lot of projects on the go simultaneously, I couldn't fail to notice the colours on these five Acers.  This little collection seem to enjoy the shelter of the old cottage chimney where they enjoy protection from direct summer sun and cold winter winds.  In winter they also have the warmth from the chimney itself.
