We've got a pond!

It'll look better in a few months, promise...

We've dug a pond in every house we've ever lived in, apart from the first, which was on the side of a steep hill with a lawn hardly big enough for a Tonka toy. There's nothing nicer than sitting by the water with a coffee watching the clouds sail overhead and listening to the dragonflies humming. Alan loves his frogs and newts and we're looking forward to the first of our fellow residents. A new pond always looks very raw but it doesn't take long to establish. I think we'll leave this one a bit more au naturel than previous landscaped ponds - ferns, lady's mantle and so on but nothing exotic - though whether I'll be able to resist the lure of a candelabra pimrose or two in the boggy bit is open to debate! Anyway it's off to the garden centre in Galway on Saturday for some water plants and hopefully free snails.
