We have found a site for our pond…. Initially a wildlife pond we think… Eventually maybe some ducks for it…..
Dig faster James it’s starting to fill up!!! We’ll line it during a dry spell… And we need to make sure it has a sturdy bottom banking so…..
I wake very early, especially considering it was Easter Sunday, but the dawn chorus was LOUD, not surprising when you think that the little tin hut’s windows are ill fitting corrugated plastic and plastic bags!!!! I sat in the lounge area of the little tin hut and read some of the Gwlad magazines that the previous owner had left and gleaned some interesting pieces of information. Mum and Dad arrived from their B and B at about half nine, whilst I was being brave and trying out the hovel’s shower!!! Hot but weak, so with all my hair it took an age to rinse the shampoo out!!!
We started the day sorting out some of the issues in the triangle of doom, mainly by digging out the ditch by the drain and ensuring it was clear so that it might actually take some of the water under the road not down it in times of heavy rain!!
It was at this point I realised that we had one decent spade with us and that was in use in the hole… So I got bored and wandered off to take some photos!!
The view of the house as you come up the road….
An exciting one now… The drain above stream pipe! Yes Dad don’t think even putting an iron trough there makes it drinkable water!!!
Stream pipe as seen from above… Picture it now without brambles and bordered with willow pollards!!
Bank side plants….
The blue being vinca the other I forget….
And a few compulsory view shots!!
Although to be fair I was probably trying to get a onto on my phone of the buzzards or red kites swirling about in the sky!! Fail!!!
