Good evening from sunny Cheshire ☀️


Hi guys,
Well I’ve been pottering about in the garden today. I’ve also dragged hubby off on a lovely country walk and it doubled as a mission to find a good 5ft stick to provide a perch for a dragonfly that has been swooping around. I tried to get a pic but it was so quick! I’ve stuck the stick next to the pond and its in full sun so hopefully the dragon fly will approve! I had a froggy visitor also pop in today. He’s lurking under the milfoil. Also spotted lots of daphnea happily swimming about.

I’m sure my husband thinks I’m crackers! Lol, he says I’m pond obsessed but I can think of no better obsession myself :) I wish my pond enthusiasm would rub off on him but no such luck yet 😉

Oh, I am enjoying being off work and I’m so glad the weather has improved. Hope everyone has had a lovely day too.

Chilling with the spiders. My garden pond has hundreds of these little chaps :)

An obligatory pic of Noodle and the pond in the sunshine.

Is this chap a leach?

The beautiful river Weaver. It was so peaceful.

A new feathered friend. :)

Spot the frog!

Not sure this dwarf water lily is going to bloom but I’ve tried my best. It’s now repotted and has much more room. It’s now sat in a container until it grows a leaf or two.

Great photos, love the cat and the photos of the River Weaver, not so sure about the spider though. I'm from Cheshire too and have been enjoying the sunshine in my own garden. Good luck with the dwarf water lily, hope it blooms for you.

Hi Louisa, I have the spiders all over the place. Luckily I don't mind sharing my garden and home with them. They even turn up in the bathroom but God knows what they eat??
Nice to meet a fellow Cheshire lass :)

Hi Snoop, how are those tatties coming along? I hope the slugs haven't had chips for their tea? I bought some beautiful cream tulips yesterday and had to rush out at midnight to do a slug check! Thankfully, the egg shells I stuck in have done the trick.
