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

Witton Henge!

Druids this way!!

After all the trimming, mowing and clearing up, it was time to unload Chris's latest garden acquisitions! 3 huge lumps of stone all bound for the Fernery.  We now have our very own Witton Henge and to give it an authentic pagan look, the finishing touches are some found animal skulls - just to give an impression of ancient pagan sacrificial rites!

On a slightly more serious note, the ferns will grow and soften the look and in spring, the Cyclamens will add some colour.  Thanks very much Chris!
