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

Summerhouse Painting

On the run up to open gardens, it's all hands on deck! Today, Brian finished giving the summerhouse a new look. As a change from the green and rather anaemic white,we have Farrow and Ball's heritage colours -  French Grey and Dorset Cream.  The cream has far more depth and warmth.

Thanks to Chris, the doors now open freely and the hinges have been well oiled! Head of Maintenance has been spoken to about more frequent and regular oiling of hinges in the future!

...and after.
