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

Mellow Autumn Day

Jewel-like rose hips

Autumn!  It's so nice to see the brilliant scarlets of the berries, hips and haws in the garden at this time of year - to say nothing of the brilliant red chilli peppers.  I've had 3 pickings and the results are being dried for use later on.  Also the Sedums in the borders are not only looking colourful but are covered in insects!
Cider apples in the surrounding orchards are being harvested and our own pears and apples are ripening well in the late autumn sunshine.

More sedums in the Lower Border
