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!

Totally Ruined!

I know I'm a bit late with this post but, on the rainy afternoon of our open garden evening, Chris arrived with these three fab stone columns bound for the Aspen Grove.  He slaved away all alone in the pouring rain determined to have them them upright and perfectly placed in time.  They weighed an absolute ton and as they were so wet, they must have made pretty slippery handling.  Despite all the odds, he placed them all and, as usual, not a footprint to be seen.  Furthermore, they're covered in lichens and look as if they've been there for 100's of years.  Our very own ruin!
