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

10 Year Surprise!

 With all that's been happening around here and a massive spike in C19 infections, I withdrew form our annual NGS County Meeting held last week. A bit of a shame really as it was to be in person - the last two being zoom meetings thanks to a certain virus. This should have been the first return to normality! Cest la vie!

Having prepared my slideshow presentation, Dave Morgan our County Organiser stood in for me. I had no idea that we had been opening for 10 years until he explained that I would also miss being presented with an engraved trowel for services rendered.   Anyway here it is! Now, the $64,000 question is, will I dare to use it?
