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

Arctic Easter

The remains of Matt & Sarah's snowman - in April!
A much tidier drive!
Most of the Easter break has been spent grafting in the garden with help from both Chris's and trying to keep warm.  Snow remains in sheltered areas and ferocious night frosts.  Undeterred, Chris P finished off the drive by levelling and raking gravel up to the newly laid retaining bricks and burying light cables.  It's all looking very tidy and a big change from a muddy drive, building materials everywhere and a skip full of rubbish.
