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

Cheering Sights in a January Garden

Lonicera Fragrantissima
The old Victorian tree guard

A calm and frosty day with not a breath of air moving and I found a shrub covered in highly fragrant blooms to remind us that the days are getting just that tiny bit longer as the sun came up behind an old Victorian tree guard.!!
