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.

Gardener's Rainy Day Out!



Head Gardener took time off from her own (very wet) garden and went off to visit Showborough House Sculpture Garden.  It's SUCH a lovely garden and so worth a visit.  Sadly, it closes on Sunday until next year. We admired both the fabulous  and quirky garden and many of the sculptures.  We even bought a couple of small ones - a glass blackbird to join our Woodpeckers and a leafy metal globe which I think will look effective with either a plant in it or a candle. After enjoying tea and cakes, it was time for another wander round.  I spotted a huge amount of Mistletoe growing in a big old Acacia which I'd not seen before. 

The following link is well worth looking at: https://www.showborough.com/index.html
