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

Burwarton & District Annual show

Two days off in a week!  Well, one can't miss Burwarton!  It was a great show apart from the feral children who annoyed everyone with their loud and disruptive behaviour in the grandstand. No sign of any security despite the fact 2 panels of security fencing being removed by show officials!  This meant that 12 or more out of control children were actually inside the arena perimeter and running riot during displays!  We took ourselves off to the far (and quieter) end of the grandstand.  The catering arrangements in the member's tent were a joke and run by incompetents with mile long slow queues and hungry, frustrated and complaining visitors!  Apart from this; it was a really lovely show with huge numbers of people.
