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.

Rainy Day Boredom!

Chris's oak ferns
& a more primeval neighbour




Two days of rain and Chris is bored!  This is what he does when he's bored!! He makes beautifully sculpted oak ferns out of some unwanted oak rails. He's put them in the Fernery where the other ferns are unfurling rather more slowly. Chris, they look amazing. Thanks so much!
