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

Just a common old Campanula

Making the best of some rare sunshine!

Greenhouse Way.
It may be common but how pretty is this Campanula? It's a joy to pass en route to the greenhouse. Sadly going over now but it bravely withstood several downpours of equatorial rain and obviously enjoys the warmth of the bricks behind as well as their support. I think this one is probably Poscharskyana but don't hold me to it.
