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

Studio Path

Setting the 'Landing' date
Yes- it does say MMXII

There's no stopping Chris just cos the temperature has plummeted! Today was even colder and greyer but, after cobbling around the landing date, he ploughed on with the greenhouse path and digging the sump hole for the Herb Garden water feature.  I nearly froze to death - just helping to set the date tiles yesterday!  A hot bath was the only way to defrost!

The studio path has 3 diamonds each made from 4 tiles and have been inset with the smaller sized cobbles. The greenhouse path is a combination of York stone flags and cobbles.
