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

PTC By Night

It was such a warm evening, we sat outside again listening to the owls and watching the bats so I took a few shots without a tripod which aren't too bad - considering.   The trellis looks softer now the climbers have put on a bit of growth. Kays arbour and arch also look all the better for having planting growing up them. It has to be remembered that they were all dug and, having spent the winter laid in the veg patch; weren't replanted until this April.
