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

Despite the frosts & snow flurries..

Magnolia Soulangeana
Clematis Armandii Apple Blossom

Meanwhile; in the rest of the garden and, despite the heavy morning frosts and snow, we do have some colour. Although, if this keeps up much longer, all the Magnolia blooms will be a delicate shade of brown. Still, it's a change to see some blue sky after the relentless rain.
