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

The joy of a garden in June!

The roses aare all in bloom and Chris's Paul's Himalayan Musk is really startling! The Summer Solstice has now passed and a whole row of Arran Pilots have been eaten!!!  

We're managing to keep in front of black fly on the beans and half the meadow grass has been mown! The Syringa is filling the garden with scent and the lemon tree is filling the terrace with its heady perfume.  Time to take a moment from the garden drudgery to enjoy the fruits of labour! 

What's not to love about a garden in June?
