Linda Monk and Pond

Fab day today, wonderful and inspiring workshop with Linda Monk, really pleased with book I have made, have decided that I will put black cartridge paper in mine, as the cover is black and gold. So need a trip to Basildon!

Then home to wire up pump and filter for pond, amazing how long it takes to thread cables through conduit and put plugs on.... But finally got there and my frog seems very happy with his new home :-)



Oscar testing out the foot path


New pond feeding intonation old puddle!


Righthand side of rockery sorted - yes I know you can see the hose leading to the pump, didn't think about how to hide this in my enthusiasm, hopefully lots if plants will want to grow over it in time.

Pond so Far

I am ok with the digging but not much good with the wall building, first lot I used the wrong sand, thought builders sand spoke for itself, but no, should have used sharp sand - silly me! Good job mist of the wall will be hidden :-)



The hole


The transplanted Plants seem to be surviving





Bit worried about the tree though :-(


Oscar has been a help!!


So far, so good
