First Autumn Tidy Up - 26/9/2015

A selection of photos taken
during the first Autumn pond tidy up.

I had a tidy up of the little wildlife pond,
cutting back the Iris plants and splitting one
of the Scirpus Cernuus plants into two pots.

One half of the Scirpus Cernuss repotted.

The other half of the Scirpus Cernuus.

My Wife planted
a couple of Black Dragons,
from another plant which had multiplied.

I divided the Scirpus cernuus
in the bigger pond too.

That's a total of three in the big pond now.
These should provide good cover
for the frogs next year.

I've resisted thinning out the elodea crispa
as keeping it the pond stops the leaves that
fall in from sinking to the bottom.

This is a lesson I learnt the hard way last year.

provided cover the tadpoles in Spring.

This is where some of the
young frogs have been hanging out,
in the long grass next to the old bike shed.
