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

Empty Nests

All our robins have now fledged and there has been much agitation and activity in the process.  The parents having been constantly calling to their fledglings who have chosen the worst day to leave!  We have rain and gales and the temperatures have plummeted.  Fingers crossed they survive!
The last to leave home

Watchful parent
