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

Even Nearer!!

A very tidy greenhouse...
..with neat labelling!

Have been madly tidying .....

.........everywhere - trimming, edging, weeding, sweeping, titivating etc.  Only 24rs left before the final mow and edging.  The greenhouse has never looked so tidy I even labelled Chris's tomato plants!  The Garage Gallery is really taking shape and now even has a plant stall outside.  Denise also brought some super cushions for Chris's seat.  Al has been shopping for teas and coffee and friends have really rallied round and cakes are rolling in - phew!  Even the weather forecast is favourable.  Fingers crossed!

If only there was time to sit on it!
