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

Yet More Snow!

Rob's Retreat
Such is the dramatic overnight change in the garden that, despite the persistent falling snow on the camera lens, I couldn't resist attempting a few fuzzy pictures. When this lot thaws, things are going to be a tad on the soggy side!
With so much snow on its roof, unusually, the greenhouse is really rather dark  inside but, at least the heater is maintaining the temperature just above freezing.

An unusually dark greenhouse!
