The gardens at Pear Tree Cottage sit in a cider apple orchard in the green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England. It enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury & 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!

A Night on the Tiles!

Our surprise visitor!

Honestly!  The surprises one finds here at Pear Tree Cottage!!  This is who joined us for an evening on Easter Sunday!  I had heard him some distance away and started calling to him.  We called to each other for a while and then he decided to come and investigate for himself and flew into our oldest pear tree.  From there, he flew up on to our roof and stayed there all night.  I don't know where he came from but at least he was safe from foxes up there. The following morning he and I called back and forth but it was a peahen he was really hoping to find!  When we came back from our morning visit, he had gone.
