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! This began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but, above all, demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers

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!
