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

April Successes!

So much perfume.

Am feeling VERY smug!  Firstly, I managed to sow and plant ALL vegetables before the weather turned -perfect timing!  Secondly, I've managed to keep the birds off the Wisteria and we have MASSES of flowers opening!!  HURRAH!  In the past, the birds have stripped off all the flower buds leaving nothing but bare branches.  Guess what.  Now we have storms and wild weather forecast - SIGH!

Hoping the storms won't be too damaging.

Well timed shower!
