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

Wichenford Open Gardens 2013


The Teas Team!

What a perfect day!!  Warm sunshine after the hassle of cutting hedges in the rain!! Poor Brian painting the summerhouse and the rain washing off the paint faster than he could paint more on!  At one time, it looked as if someone had tipped a churn of milk over the windows!  He stuck at it despite everything and it looked pretty good.  Chris and I worked on the Yew hedge until 8:30pm and it did look pretty amazing.  A quick blow round before the team arrived to serve teas and placing cushions just about everywhere and we were pretty much ready. 

Chris was under very strict instruction to take photos of visitors in the garden this time and not shots of an empty garden!  This time we found pictures with people on!!

His photos can be seen at:  

Meanwhile, I have to get ready for today's invasion......................!
