    It's incredible how the wildlife know about ponds. I'm sure there must be a secret newspaper vacancy site for them somewhere lol. I guess the old saying ' build it and they will come' is very true image Ive just spotted a frog hiding in mine but he's very camera shy!

    Lovely, but I still think thats my snail image I love the stone gnome, and those Euphorbias are gorgous.

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    What wonderful people there are on this site image Thank you all.

    Gemma - I hope to plant some water forget-me-nots and brooklime in the gravel but no tadpoles this year I think.

    JodeJay - I think word does get around yes, even though there's no permanent amphibians yet there's loads of water insects/invertebrates.

    Yviestevie - go for it, I used to have a pond donkey's years ago and this is the first one since then. I only wish I'd dug one out sooner, you won't regret it.

    Lyn - I do believe you introduced water snails into our pond, albeit inadvertently via your plants. Love them though. The Euphorbias I'm told are the wild ones, wood spurge euphorbia amygdaloides.
