This afternoon I spent a good hour just watching the tadpoles swimming around in the pond. Not so long ago I was worried that perhaps the newts might be scoffing them all up but I can report that there is still an abundance of tadpoles despite their recent disappearance.
As usual the tadpoles are doing a great
job in helping clear up the pond water.
The little armeira maritma plants that I planted in
the stone border around the pond are doing well.
The ophiopogon plants are doing good too.
I could spend hours next to the pond.
