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

As if a heatwave, hedge cutting and haymaking wasn't enough to cope with!  This week we 'ave bin mostly....

......'aving visitors!  

All in the name of the National Garden Scheme, we have hosted an afternoon garden birthday party and an evening visit by Menith Wood W.I.. 

All have included serving cold drinks, afternoon teas/coffees, cakes and for the W.I. - Prosecco too.  Very luckily, I have been helped out by Lindy and two Paulines who have rushed around serving and washing up. All of this has helped increase charitable garden fundraising to £1,401.50 so far! Well done team!!
