    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.

    Looks fab Steveimage Love the rose.

    What's the tall reed called?

  • Thanks. image

    On the right in the gravel bed surrounding the pond? It's a victoria plum on a very dwarfing stock.


    Of course, if I wasn't blind then I'd have read that properly...

    I'd be over the moon if I had dragonflies in the pond - how coolimage

    I might keep an eye out for that reed although I suspect my pond is too small for anymore plants...

  • Amazing. I had to sort out one of the pots in the pond that had fallen over and to my delight I spied a newt in the pond! My other half thinks I am nuts to be quite so excited but this makes all of my effort, sweat and aches worthwhile!
