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!

Not just outdoors

Prunus blossom
A mixed posy

I simply couldn't resist bringing a touch of spring to the kitchen windowsill.  Unlike Hellebore, at least the Narcissus and a few twigs of Prunus give days of scent and pleasure.  Note the use of an old pewter teapot, a Marmite jar and an old chipped jug. 

...And I'm most definitely not supersticious about bringing Snowdrops indoors!

Sunshine at the sink!
