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.

Who needs elves???




Making these beautiful tree decorations and gift tags is keeping Chris busy!!  They are quite exquisite and as he's used so many different woods the variety of grains is huge.  They are also fragrant - particularly the Leylandii and the Cedar ones.  

Obviously each is unique and he's recycling local trees. He has more shapes and designs but these photos just depict the hearts and stars.  Some of the really big ones make lovely stand alone Christmas ornaments and the cedar ones make perfect pomanders as they repel moths and add a lovely fragrance inside a wardrobe or cupboard.  Would I make a good salesman???
