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

Five Minute Frost

Clear and crisp with sunshine - surprise!  This was the scene that greeted the inhabitants of P.T.C. this morning and, having got our hopes up, it lasted all of 5 minutes, the rain clouds rolled back in and down came more rain!  As if we need any more!

Oh well it was nice while it lasted and this rose looks as if it's been dusted with icing sugar!
