Just catching a little time to tell you about the garden.
When moving into a new home the garden is not always to your liking and over the winter months one plans. On a T.V. program I watched it told you how you can create a small pond. A washing up bowl is used. This has been my first venture – to create the pond. I have a lot of ‘surplus’ earth around but now no doubt in time will be re-used.
On one side of the garden, by next door’s fence they previous owners had put loads of small stones so I’ve moved them and am making a border. On my left raised bed I have put the pond. A lot of moving soil and trying to make the edges hold up. I dug a hole and place the bowl in. Put my fossils stones (collected over the years) into the bowl next rain water was added. I bought the special plant that helps to ariate the water. The final step was asking my friend (who has 2 ponds) whether she could spare some of the tadpole spawn. This year in her garden there is am abundance of frogs and spawn. Placed in the jam jar I carefully carried it home and deposited them in the new pond. Today I have been puttingsome plants an old wood around . Now its WATCH THIS SPACE.
I have inherited a long drain pipe and having no idea how to get rid of it decided to plant it in the garden. With openings both ends it could be a great haven for our insect life.
Well that’s all for now
