Fanfare for the Pond
Here it is.
I did say it was a very small pond!
But it makes good use of the old sink.
Now, I need to explain that this is only for the ducks to wash their faces in. Apparently, they don't actually need a swimming area, but they do need a washbasin for their eyes.
So, they will start with this and a proper pond will be dug, as time goes on. By someone other than me!!
In the meantime, as you may be able to see from the photos, I have puddled one of two areas near the current 'pond'.
You will also notice that it is tastefully positioned under the shade of a tree and that I have created this project in the Spring in order to get the grass growing round it as soon as possible.
Anyone who laughs at this project will be shunned. It was very cold, it was very wet, the sink wouldn't sink and I got mud in my wellies.
I shall take another picture when the sun is out and the grass has grown and the tree is in leaf. Until then, please employ imagination!!
