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

Even more autumnal.........

In fact; it's looking a LOT more like autumn at PTC.  With the exception of the Tree Fern, all tender plants are now back in the greenhouse for winter. Al has been busy picking and storing apples in the 'Hut'.  The spring planting around the pond has really grown and matured in one single season.  It's difficult to believe it was only done this spring.  The Virginia Creeper is making its presence felt (in its 2nd year) on the tool shed.  Hopefully by this time next year, it will look even more spectacular!  I can't wait for it to trail all over the roof.
