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

Cairn Curve to Curly Whirly Corner

 The re-routed service path is looking really lovely since Chris mulched it with wood chip.  I really am quite thrilled with it!  No more muddy paths and a short cut to the compost heap from the Hennery!!  The new stretch of path runs fron the cairn to Curly Whirly Corner.  There was enough to put a layer in the Henclosure for the girls to scratch around in.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the garden, snowdrops leaves are pushing through, bulbs are appearing and all despite a week of frosty days with mists and fog.  That's one of the joys of gardenong - there's always things to look forward to every day in every season!
