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

Another Pear for PTC's Garden

Another Genever Pear.

Look what's appeared now!  Chris's idea - to cut a pear out of a broken piece of stone.  10 minutes with a massive angle grinder and this was the result!  Check out those curves!  Some people are just too clever!  Look at his pointing between the granite sets.  He's managed to frame each one. 

While all this artistry was happening, the other Chris was busy replanting the roses and climbers which had been laid in for the past few months in the veg patch.  I spent the day helping both Chris's - one minute brushing off mortar and the next, digging up Clematis!  At least the re-erected trellis doesn't look quite so bare.  If we can make some more panels up this week, maybe could replant all the Aubretias and pinks......................?
