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!

Spring Fever!

We can REALLY say it's spring now as the cuckoo (not my photo) has arrived!!  Well, he arrived on Monday 13th, to be precise.  Funny how we love the cuckoo when he's not exactly a bird of nice habits!  The other local arrival has been the first asparagus and I can say it's truly delicious.  Other arrivals include bats which have been much in evidence flitting around in the evening twilight.  The magnolia is in full bloom and the only awaited visitors are the swallows.  The grass is growing apace so mowing is back on the twice weekly gardening agenda not to mention edging!
