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

Neat Seats!

With Saturday's woodworking, I was reminded that it's time for some spring time wood care. Most of the oak seats and benches have now had a coat of creosote. Those with any build up of algae following prolonged exposure to the winter rains are now returned to their original glory. After all, these were seats we made last year by recycling the metal ends. Four down - three to go!.
