During Dan’s first week off work he built us a pond.

Clever man, did it in about two days.

He dug a hole, in a natural shape, and placed pond liner inside. He then placed rocks around the edge & filled it up with tank water (henceforth the ugly brown colour).

We purchased a solar pump from Hargraves (pricey, yet brilliant, because it’s so easy). The pump works whenever there is full sun.

We bought some aquatic plans from Hargraves & Eden Gardens. All the stuff from Eden was potbound, which was quite disappointing.

Our neighbour’s girlfriend brought us some tadpoles from her pond, which was nice. She also included some native aquatic plants, including one that sits on the surface of the water.

There is already one frog around, which I love, and I hope for more soon.
