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

PTC garden gets a clothes line

As the chief blogger around here has been laid low with some vicious bug and isn't fit for more pressing outside tasks, the blog gets a bit of a spring make-over instead.

It may not sound much followers of this blog but, for the first time in 7 years, I am the proud owner of a proper clothes line!  Not one of those that whizzes round all the time and it may not be the longest in the world but, after all this time and, as they say up north, 'Owt's better than nowt!'  Building a barn meant that there was, at last, something to which the other end could be anchored and as this is a Canadian clothes line, I can stand in one place and hang the washing out, rotating it was required!  It was only fitting that its first outing should support all the gardening togs!
