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

Nude, Rude & Lewd

Nude & Rude as they've become known have a new friend. Yes, we had to call her Lewd! It's another statue on loan from the Chris Pugh collection. Each will sit in her own little niche in the hedge when it greens up and all will gaze out over the vegetable patch. Over time, Lewd will also weather and acquire lichens and mosses like her two friends. They certainly bring a certain classical elegance to the old veg patch!

Now, the thing is, Chris has been talking about another member of his collection. A replica of Michael Angelo's David. The question is: should we call him Dude?
