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

Hardly Thomas Chippendale!

Recycled oak throne 

The odd rainy Saturday in the garden at PTC never means idle hands!  This particular rainy Saturday meant the production of a very rustic chair made from recycled oak fence posts and rails.  Not quite the driftwood effect but, not a millions miles away. Meanwhile; Pugh's Pew has moved down to the Aspen Grove to make room for Thompson's Throne?
