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

Corking champagne!

Having spent the day raking, mowing, tidying, weeding, trimming and strimming - yawn, we tested out - (purely for purposes of evaluation you understand!) a rather fine bottle of English champagne made just up the road and provided by Chris.  It was amazingly delicious and as it was made in such small quantities, it didn't even have a label.  Anyway it was quite the most perfect end to a busy and tiring day in the garden.  Even the sunset didn't let us down!
