lovely blog Jacque and fantastic photos. it must have taken ages to load them all thanks.
do you mind me changing the identy of one of the plants? hope not but the tall buttercup type plants are great spearwort or Ranunculus lingua. i have them in flower in my pond at the moment. the marsh marigold Caltha palustris is more of a spring plant.
