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.

Squatter in the Greenhouse

Aeonium arboreum atropurpureum Scwarzkopf

Hardly a remarkable photo..........you might suppose. Just an Aeonium standing in a greenhouse. 






Mr Toad alias Bufo bufo of the family Bufonidae
Take a look at the second photo and see who our latest resident is sitting at the base of the Aeonium! He moved in about 3 weeks ago but was reluctant to pose until this evening. Now isn't that surprising when we consider the fact that the greenhouse has only been up since May. Any guesses when he hopped in? Bufo Bufo!  What a great name!!  We decided to call him Mr. Morse!
