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

Vernal Equinox at PTC

Here at Pear Tree Cottage, we didn't need an eclipse to remind us it was spring although it was rather good that it should occur on the vernal equinox!   It took more than an half an hour of eerie daylight to eclipse the Prunus blossom or any of the other spring shots although my photos of the actual eclipse were less than impressive. It was the flare that made them!  Check out:  Pear Tree Cottage under an eclipse
