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.

No particular reason...

Mosses among the Sempervivums
For some reason, I just like this photo taken in the early morning sun! We have an old cast metal table and chair, with shallow pots of Sempervivums and laid like a dining table.  An old beet hook is the knife and trowel for the spoon...etc. This is a large bowl which looks like the main course and contains Stone crops and an ancient grey squirrel's skull - it just caught my eye this morning.
