Hi, just wondered how we were all getting on? My little pond is full of all sorts of little wriggly larvae. The grass has grown very long around the liner and I think the frogs are using this to their advantage as I hear them but don't see them.
The dandelions have gone to seed now and today I noticed that the water crowfoot is starting to flower and my dwarf lily has grown a leaf to the surface.
It's beautiful just watching the season unfold. Tonight I noticed a white buff tailed bumble bee struggling. Poor thing couldn't fly in the rain and must have been feeling pretty chilly so I popped him on a piece of card and put a water and sugar solution in a tiny lid for him to drink from and then he huddled down under a plant pot that I filled with dry moss for him. I've now put him under the hedge for shelter in the pot- lovely little creature.
