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

Wednesday 8th August saw another group visit to PTC garden, this time I remembered to take a photograph! Despite the welcomed cooler weather, the sun shone and their visit raised another £80.00 for the National Gardens Scheme charity. Thank goodness, we got home in time for me to mow and edge just before they all arrived!

Another result of this visit was the the enthusiasm shown by one couple who expressed a real interest to open their own garden for the National Garden Scheme next year. Let's hope it works out!

Thanks to one and all for your support and your kind comments.
