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

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.
