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!

FLYING GARDENERS

After so much hard work in Pear Tree Cottage garden, all gardeners felt like a deserved day off and tried their hands at flying!  It all began with another Ebay purchase  of Chris's.



This time it was a beautiful old garden pump and it just happened to need collecting very near Duxford.  Well, we couldn't be so near to aeroplanes without another visit!  Actually it was a first for Chris.  As well as looking at lots of lovely aeroplanes, we decided to go up in a Dragon Rapide as it was such a clear day. A perfect view of all the local gardens!  As this aeroplane was covered in fabric, climbing in needed care - no one wanted to put their feet through it!  The take of speed was so leisurely and landing on grass was so soft.  Peaceful it was not.  Even noisier than a helicopter but despite the cramped seating, surprising comfortable.  The tank museum was excellent and one was reminded of certain excavations at PTC when looking at the tracks and ruts!
