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

We all have our favourites!


Two years ago my favourite shovel was lost after accidentally being left in Chris's wood. Now this was not any old shovel.  This was a special shovel given to me by my Daddy!! During this time it lay forgotten and neglected beneath a pile of wood. Having found it earlier this week, today, Chris returned it all polished, oiled and as good as new. It now hangs safely back in its place in the tool shed - never to be lost again!

A gleaming  F.M.J shovel comes home!


         Thanks Chris!
