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

Lifting the faces of Hellebores

There are times when I wish these grew up on a bank so we could see their faces.  Instead, these Hellebores spend their time hiding their faces and looking down down at the ground.  It's always such a lovely surprise when you lift up the flower heads and peep inside!  If only they lasted just a little time in water...sigh!
