The niche in the Herb Garden got a new coat of paint thanks to Brian. It's made from plaster and after a few years all my efforts were peeling off in large papery flakes. It's now had a special treatment before being painted with magnolia (!) Santex exterior paint
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!
