All loaded up again with garden waste, grass cuttings and the new pond liner aka an extra large washing up bowl.
To my excitement I noticed that the Butternut Squash in the Greenhouse is already showing signs of life
And the spinach outside (still covered at night due to the frosts) is also looking good!!
Now for the pond!!
I decided this time last year where the pond would go, and I still think it's a great site, so that's were it went in!
This was the washing bowl (extra large) that I bought from Islington - I was walking passed this shop, I spied it sitting there with this "buy me, buy me" vibe coming towards me and I thought to myself - that would make a perfect pond!
So I started to dig.
And I couldn't decide if I should leave it as it was or if I should line it!! The green plastic I used was an old mulch bag - but had a small hole in it, so I decided to leave it without.
In went the stones, so that if any poor creature got into trouble it could climb out
And with the help of a kind plot neighbour I had a few plants
And even a few tadpoles too!!
I found a few nice big(ish) stones to add a small haven towards the back, which as you can see backs onto the mini nature reserve, and the toad house is there too!
