The gardens of Pear Tree Cottage sit in a cider apple orchard in the green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England. It enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury & Abberley clock tower. The Teme Valley lies just over the hill and, not far away, is the Herefordshire border. Although our climate is temperate - PHZ 8, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener!
It all began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but most of all demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers.

Company for Lewd, Rude and Nude!
Our mossy lyre player.
Lyrenal being lifted into place!
We have more arrivals from 'Chris's Classical Collection!' This time, both are men - one a lot more brazen than the other! One plays the lyre and the other.......well! He looks a quite a bit of a poser! OK he's really a copy of Michael Angelo's David and will probably be known as Dave. Both await their own spot in the garden! Our lyre player is beautifully weathered and even has moss growing on his arm.
