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 snow!

Still more snow and heavy frosts!  The girls are remaining snug in the Hennery with frequent de-icing on the water drinker! Amazingly and despite the cold weather and short daylight hours; they continue to lay.  We must be doing something right!  Can't help but take lots of photographs with everything covered in snow and hoar frost!  In fact: I'm taking far too many!

Right: House for Hens, Hen Shelter & The Hennery
