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

Stihl Life!

Chris called in with 2 mighty oak planks!  They are tremendously heavy and I couldn't lift one. Amazing! Now that is a present and a half!  He took this photos with his largest (Stihl!) chainsaw for scale - having just used it to plank them up.  
I'm sure we can use them somewhere in the garden - maybe in Rob's Retreat when we start building it. In the meantime, they have been stored in the barn until we come up with an idea.  before you think 'bench or seat', the one thing this garden is not short of is garden seating!  (Oh, and credit for the witty title of his shot has to go to Al!)
