More digging done for path. Sore arms and it looks like I've done nowt 

Thought I'd better come in as the robin's getting shirty with me  - I keep disturbing him when he wants to get his tea  

Brisket in the slow cooker so not much to do for dinner. 

Dove - if you're looking I sent you  a PM - just about sticking some pond pix on if you get a chance, for a new poster who is enlarging his pond. Thought if we could put some photos on of completed ones it will help him with his ideas

Better to split the plants Maureen. Geraniums divide very easily and even small pieces will grow away if they have some root attached. An established clump will survive quite happily having pieces hacked off. I've done some recently

Enlarging a pond

Posted: 02/11/2014 at 15:01

Just the job Sbeetle  

A slope - or beach - is perfect for wildlife of all sorts to access the pond. Usually you lay gravel of varying sizes on the slope, with a few rocks etc to make it look as natural as possible. Once you get some planting round about the pond as well as in it you create a lovely habitat for all sorts of creatures and birds. Several forum members have ponds of this sort - Dove has created one this year and I'm sure she'll put a few pix on to give you an idea.

Mine is a tiny one - also just finished - and has shelves for marginals, a gravel slope and a planted area beside it with evergreens for cover , and  you could scale it up to any size you wanted. The deepest section is about 2 feet
