It's more of a pondside plant Lyn, but happy in quite wet conditions so ideal for boggy bits, and it will grow in shallows too. We had a rill connecting the ponds and it grew in there.
I get very sad when I see a dead bee
Not sure if that's a common one Lyn. I think they're regional too - like birds and butterflies. We used to get loads of damsel flies and black and yellow dragonflies. We had a smaller pond near the big one, and we'd bought some young koi which we kept in there so we netted the pond. I had to help the emerging dragonflies out sometimes if they couldn't find the gaps in the net!
Aren't they just the most beautiful creatures - even if the nymphs are rather horrible and vicious!
