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.

Door to nowhere!

The Nowhere Door!
Today, Chris managed to pick up and deliver our new mirror in one piece - despite obvious worries! In a north facing dark yew hedge, it's very effective.  We shall probably grow the hedge out further so that the door will be set back deeper.  It's our very own version of a little trompe l'oeil - all made some left over stone, a couple of square fence posts, a decking board, some ply plus a little time, imagination and Chris's help!
