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!

FROM GARDENING TO COOKING. You're never too old to learn!

On a dark and miserable day and with a new kitchen and an invitation to an Aga demonstration - off we went to Hills of Ledbury and took our seats at 11:00am.  Exactly 2 hours later this is what Marcia had cooked without using a single top plate except for an egg, the toast and the drop scones

Even if you hate Aga's - just how impressive was that?  All ready for us to eat and there were only about 20 of us.  It did inspire me to make some more scones today - and there are only 3 left!
