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

Highway Code in the Garden?

Road Junction

Bend sign in The Fernery
The studio gets another sign

Thanks to Chris Genever, we have some beautiful old 60's road signs around the garden.  No chance of losing your way now! Even Clarissa has her own cattle sign and the studio has a school sign - straight out of a Peter & Jane book.  I can't claim the idea of placing them around the garden but it's much better than putting them on a wall.  The junction signs have been placed  at path corresponding intersections so it's not too mad.  At night they show up well because all are reflective.  This means they not only reflect the garden lights but also pick up the beam of a torch.
