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

Winter Waning?

Spring is definitely stealing nearer and nearer and down in the Woodland Border there's more and more proof .........of the floral variety! Before getting down to some serious border tidying, I took this photo of a some Hellebores, Snowdrops, Pulmonarias and Primroses with a Nexus 7 using the panoramic feature - for no particular reason.  I never find photographing subjects in this border easy because it's always in shade with the sun at the back meaning that the photographer throws her own shadow just where she doesn't want it!
