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

PHEW - rain at last!

The last time we enjoyed rain was 24 June 2011 - nearly 9 whole weeks ago!  No wonder most of the grass is brown and it's looking like autumn.  The national press have already printed pictures of trees in their autumn livery.  The maples, hazels and birch trees are all changing colour here too.
