The Snow Didn’t Kill All The Frog Spawn :) My Sunday Photo

tadpoles 2018

When the snow and ice came last month, I worried that the frogspawn was all going to be killed. I did think about trying to do something to protect it, but it’s a wildlife pond. No one would be putting bubblewrap over frogspawn in a true wildlife pond so we decided to let nature do…

Lots and Lots of Tadpoles I thought we had lots of tadpoles last year. This year we have lots and lots and lots more! I love them! The goldfish you can see there isn’t in the pond anymore. Our next door neighbours sold their house and asked us if we could take 2 goldfish into…

Garden before wildlife pond

Shell Louise I’ve been putting it off for weeks now and today I finally decided to get out there and move some of the flowers from the border where the pond is going to be. You can see it’s overgrown with weeds and grass but the primroses are lovely and I didn’t want to just…

Exciting garden plans afoot :D

It’s safe to say the new garden has been neglected these last few months because we’ve had a lot to do in the house. The borders aren’t doing too bad but they’re definitely in need of weeding and talking of weeds, the vegetable garden is absolutely full of them. I had planned to keep the…
