Bekkie the smoke house is a training aid we use for both school children AND fire service recruits to show you in realistic conditions how to escape from a burning building (or in the case of the fire service what you're going to running IN TOO). We were at an event celebrating the 999 services so took it out to stretch its legs. Fortunately I know my way around it blindfolded to the smoke conditions doesn't bother me.
After weeks wondering and searching for our fishes we decided they'd all been taken by the heron. So today I took a trip out to pick up some replacements (my partner requested albino grass carp) ... guess who greeted us upon our return! Four goldfish acting like they'd been there all along. I hope they all get along.,.
I also came back with a scirpus cernuus plant to add evergreen colour to the pond and I've plans for a few more when wallet allows to create a floating island and help with shading the pond in the summer. How come I'm never inspired by a trip to the supermarket?
Having learnt about carnivorous plants being grown in the UK outside in summer months I'm tempted to give it a go in a large pot I can move inside as required. Does anyone have any experience?
