However, a much better Saturday this week. We were relieved to have dry weather and some sunshine which allowed seasonal garden work to continue apace. Our 2 year old homemade leaf mould was used to mulch the old Aspen Grove which really should be renamed to the Birch Grove since we removed the ever suckering Aspens and replaced them with Acers and multi-stemmed silver birch. Chris also mulched the lower border with homemade compost and we lifted and stored the Dahlias. This year we even labeled them all - that is, all but one which was nameless and had lost its label!

- 'UP THE GARDEN PATH' by Pam Thompson
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

Getting Ahead in December
Am trying to keep up to date with posts but am definitely NOT enjoying this new interface which is much more restrictive when it comes to layout and wrapping text around photos. Hence this post contains too many empty spaces!
