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

Autumn Golds.

This year, I'm wondering if the autumn colours have been more spectacular than usual or: have I had a whole year to forget last year's colours? Even looking out of the windows, the garden has been ablaze with colour and the surrounding cider apple orchards are just pure gold!

With the mild weather, I certainly haven't needed a single excuse to find a garden job but then, that's true anyway!  If it's a toss up between indoor and outdoor jobs; outdoor always wins hands down! Leaves are falling fast now so the leaf mould pile is getting bigger!
