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

Barking up the Right Tree!

OK so the weather has turned much wetter but so far, the heavy rain and the high winds have been arriving overnight and the days have been bright and sunny.  Who could resist a quick nip round with the camera and spotting the sun on the bark of the Prunus Serrula.  It just looks so spectacular and  proves that trees don't need leaves to look amazing! Shaggy, shiny what depth of colour!!
