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

Teetering around & tidying topiary!

Here we have yet another video of Chris blowing away a year's worth of cobwebs and the more recently accumulated clippings out of the Yew topiary which, as usual makes it appear that I do nothing!  In fact, I clipped the the 'reachable' part of the Helter Skelter and the 2 smaller Yews while Chris teetered around on the top of the steps doing the difficult part at the top of the Helter Skelter.  We now have 8 containers of apple sauce in the freezer as a result of last weeks apple picking!
