We Built a Pond

It’s only a small pond – just a washing up bowl sunk into the corner of a raised bed.

The plant in the corner is Water Mint. Most of the rest is gravel or bricks, which form steps to get out if anything falls in.

I think I’ve told you all this, but as you can see from the main picture we had our first dragonfly, a Southern Hawker. Not sure if it’s a coincidence or if the “pond” really worked.

      I’m pleased with the result, though we do have a lot of topping up to do and we had volunteers in yesterday that dumped soil in it whilst weeding. Just need to find sites for two more!
