I was out watching the tadpoles in the pond earlier today when I spotted one of the newts just peeking out of the water right next to them. I quickly took a photo and seconds later I watched it take a tadpole and disappear under the water.
Luckily the tadpoles are still in abundance.
They're doing a great job
of clearing up the water.
It won't be long before the tadpoles
start developing into froglets.
The Water Mint is doing well:
Some views of the pond:
I like the view below which was taken from near the house. What I especially like is the way the pond isn't imediately obvious and how it blends into it's surroundings. That's the way I intended it to be when I installed it back in 2012.
