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.

A Reminder of Summer.



Back in the summer we had a group of artists from various WI groups in the county.  One of the ladies was very kind and has sent me this watercolour she did looking through the green doors and beyond to the greenhouse path.  I think I shall hang it over my desk in the Pear Hut (which is more like a writing room but such a name sounds a tad pretentious!)  It's only right that it should be hung in the garden!  A big thank you to Janet Pearce of Bewdley, Worcestershire.
