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

Artists Everywhere!

A sunny day in July and the garden was full of artists.  They sat everywhere sketching and painting.  One lady even sat in the Creosote Yard!  They were ladies from the Worcestershire WI Artists Group - well, I say ladies but, there was one gentleman.  MI 1 perhaps?  As well as giving a generous donation to St. Richard's Hospice and also enjoyed teas and cakes which was more money for our cause!  I was given a lovely purple Oxalis plant for which I shall find  a special place - probably in the conservatory.  We really enjoyed having them and hope they will return.  More photos can be seen here
