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

The Androlia niche has now been treated with a special undercoat and finished off with about 5 coats of sandtex. it's held in position with string temporarily and I need to find something suitable to stand in it. I did try a vase but, it looked more like an ash filled urn. Al came up with this particular alternative! Well, one tries one's level best to live up to one's reputation! Sadly, Chris's finials are in deep shadow. In reality they look very Egyptian.
