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

Frosty Transformation

The Henclosure

J. Frost Esq had paid a lengthy visit overnight and gone was the dark, damp, dull weather.  Everywhere was bright and crisp, the landscape was completely changed as everything had been painted with a sparkling rime. The ferns looked pretty again and the surrounding apple orchards so it was out with the camera before it all thawed! For more scenes, see   J. Frost visits PTC  The chickens' water was frozen solid and after thawing it out, they were given extra foodie treats to help keep out the cold. Lot to be said for wearing duvets on mornings like this!
