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

Chilling in the Garden!

Woodland Border seat
Looks like icing sugar!
Another even frostier day than yesterday.  Crisp and sparkling grass makes SUCH a pleasant change from soggy and muddy grass! Breaking the ice in the chickens drinkers and ensuring the wild birds were well stocked with fat balls, meal worms. peanuts, niger seed and raisins were priorities! Garden seats had thick coatings of sparkling white rime and leaves encrusted in sparkling highlights. Guess what!  The rain is back - sigh! More frosty photos here
