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

Simon works more magic with a paint brush!

The finished summerhouse
Simon at work
Simon has been very busy with his paint brush lately and eveything he's touched is looking super smart - especially the summer house!!  So smart in fact, I was shamed into trimming the lavender hedge even before Monty Don! Having managed to squeeze in between the cart shed wall and an overgrown bay tree with steps and a paintbrush, we waited for him to finish before trimming the tree!!  Just how bad was that?                                                                                                                              With our Twilight Garden by Candlelight event going ahead at the end of the month,  it's perfect timing for a coat of paint.  It's also comforting to think that it's all done before the onslaught of the winter weather.

I like this kind of house garden, which smells good and is beautiful.
