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

Contact the Elderly - Tea Party

On Sunday, we hosted our annual tea party for Contact the Elderly.  We enjoyed the company of 11 members and their 3 drivers.  The weather held up for a turn around the garden.  However, I discovered that, although wide enough for wheelbarrows, the greenhouse entrances are too narrow for wheelchairs.  Mmm - interesting.  Tea was enjoyed in the conservatory.  Well, it is only August!! We were so grateful for Sue's help.  She looked after our guests wonderfully by waiting on them and escorting them around the garden.  She even sold some cards!!  Thanks so much, Sue!
