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

Breakfast time.

It's a regular baby group here in the garden.  We have babies everywhere!  Blue tits, blackbirds, great tits, wagtails and woodpeckers!!  Not all like have their photos taken but we love having them around.  The Great tits nested in a clay jar of all places and we had to shade it from the heat of the sun.  All survived and fledged safely.

It is a joy to see the baby birds, the Goldfinches have been bringing their young to the feeders.
