The gardens at Pear Tree Cottage sit in a cider apple orchard in the green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England. It enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury & 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!

Lower Broadheath & Rushwick WI Visit PTC

After all yesterday's work on the new potting shed and with a couple of visiting parties expected, it was time for major clean up! Years of cobwebs were brushed away and all the nooks and crannies where dead leaves hide and monster spiders lurk were all swept out and unused materials hidden along ' Reclamation Row' behind the garage waiting for Chris's next escape!! The lawn edges were finished just before the thunder storm started. This morning it was lawn mowing at 7.30am followed by the usual preparations for serving home made teas. At 10.30am the Lower Broadheath & Rushwick WI ladies arrived bringing with them glorious sunshine. The roses are at their very best and everything was looking pretty spic and span for their visit. Anyway, they seemed to enjoy themselves and wrote very flattering comments in the visitors' book. One lady had even been twice before. I think it was definitely the cakes that nailed it!!
