I cleaned the pond pump as some fish are dying i put it down to the bench seat wood my son put over the pond to stop the herons  with all this rain it could have been  spirrit  from the wood going in the water

i see the snowdrops are coming through also other plants starting to come up

 also i put the seed and apples out for the birds which i havent seen for ages for the survey this weekend

I dont know if  the water lilly is a miniature or large as the leaves dont grow it looks healthy i will gamble and see 

I am not worried about the lavender as its only a small cutting  

 

thanks for the advice

Thank You Ryan

I keep my pump on whch is silly as its so clear but it stops the ice forming when the weather gets bad

Another problem I have a water lilly on top of a flowerpot it grows but never spreads should i put it on the bottom of the pond ??

I will try and get something to stand on even the water butt lid would do so long as i dont fall
