Today the pond was alive with the sound of music well frogs croaking and the spawn count has gone from one batch to four. I counted over 15 frogs either singles or mating pairs. It goes to show how important a small urban pond is for the wild life from the bees drinking in it , birds bathing in it hoverflies laying their young , ok mosquitoes I could do without .
The first frog spawn in my pond this year. The pond is full of frogs so hoping for a good year of baby frogs
Common frogs Mating in the pond .
The first lot of frog spawn but looks like there is more on the way.
One of the Iris’s I planted is flowering.
Around the pond and the garden is in need of attention now the warmer weather is here.
Well today I installed a pond in my garden, its not finished yet, still to have some rocks around and some plants oh and of course water. It will be topped up by the overflow form our water butt.
I thought the pond would increase the bio diversity of the garden . We already get frogs and toads and of course the dragonflies and damselflies as posted in this blog.
As you have seen we already have a log habitat and next year our lawn will be planted with meadow flowers .
