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

Studio Facelift!

Cleverly dodging much needed rain, Simon has repainted the studio roof.  We stuck with red oxide and its matt finish contrasts with the gloss of the black ridge piece.  Probably 15 years has elapsed since I painted it.  Back then, the sheet of corrugated iron were painted individually on trestles prior to being installed on the roof.  

Having been given a fabulous 50 gallon galvanised tank, what I'd really love is to install some guttering to catch and drain rain water into my lovely new tank.  Some people are never satisfied!!!

Oh, and yes. It has been spring cleaned inside!!
