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

The Song Thrush of Pear Tree Cottage

This indifferent bit of video wouldn't win a single prize but it's really worth listening to.   Mr. Thrush is singing from the top of our 60' conifer at the bottom of the garden.  He took no notice of me at all and when I played back my recording to him, he sang all the louder!  At this time of year, his concerts are held every morning and evening.  As from Monday 13th, he is sometimes joined by a cuckoo down in the valley.
