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

New door - new sign

A new potting shed deserves a new sign for its door and having a heart shaped window, the heart shaped slate from the kitchen has now found a new use and a new place. Coincidentally it looks pretty identical in size and style. I'm wondering how the chalk pen will stand up to the rain knowing that it can always be over-written. Another bit of garden character!
