The gardens at 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, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener!

He didn't quite get the photographer!

Meanwhile, our regular Saturday Chris battled with the gales while wielding a pole cutter and and a pressure washer!  By the end of the day the boundaries were looking very smart and the granite path gleaming.  The rest of the garden was strewn with leaves and branches all ripped off in the high winds. Having managed to prevent avian predation in the buds for the first time, Wisteria racaemes were littering the terrace path. Such a sorry sight.  That's gardening for you!

Gleaming granite!
