My pond 8 months later.


By rogi


Hallo all. Its been a long time since I wrote my last blog….it was about the fun me and my son had putting the pre-formed pond in the ground….now 8 months later it now looks like this…and I´m very pleased with it, it might not be everybodys idea how a pond should look…its not meant to be decorative, its for wild life…anything that wants to live in it..and I have seen a couple of toads…or frogs having a swim. I´m hoping that when summer realy comes…if it does the wild flower seeds that I scattered around will be flowering and then I will add a couple more photos.

You have some nice planting round it - and lovely clear water which isn't always easy in a small pond.

Yes I was thinking how clear the water is, the planting has come on a lot as well, if you already have frogs then I'd say it's a success Rogi and thats what you want from a wildlife pond, I can spend ages sitting watching my taddies progress, used to do that with my kids and then the grandchildren, now I do it with my dog, lol, gets very exciting when they decide its time to leave the water and find a home in the garden....
