As a child, I spent many happy hours at the pond catching newts or in the brook with my net, fishing for sticklebacks.
My favourite time of the year was spring because that’s when our froggy friends would appear. I’d get excited when I saw the frog spawn and would eagerly await the emergence of the tiny tadpoles.
Because of these happy memories, I’ve always longed for a wildlife pond of my own and earlier this year, the super wonderful husband made me a pond with a waterfall and stream.
Today, while getting one of the borders ready for planting, we saw four frogs poking their heads out of the water.
As I stood watching them, I realised that I’ve now got exactly what I’ve wanted for so long and a feeling of contentment washed over me. I absolutely love my pond and can’t thank the S.W.H. enough for making it so perfect for me :o)
