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!

Portrait of Marigold


Cicely inspects the lighting...
...& gives it the thumbs up!
The 1st of March and the days are lengthening. There's a tiny bit more heat in the afternoon sunshine & the girls are making the most of it. They are a picture of health and vitality - with bright red combs and wattles to prove my point.  All continue to lay well but then as The World's Most Spoilt Chickens, it's really no surprise.  In their extensive Bamboo garden, it's an enviable lifestyle and a far cry from that of battery hens.
