As I have mentioned before on this blog, this is the year of the water feature, oh, and the federal election as well.
I have wanted a decent pond or two for a very long time and I am now at the exciting stage of looking at plans. Catherine Shields is working on a design with riding instructions to have a solar pump, plenty of natives, boulders and habitat all around as well as the compulsory sound of running water. The only down side is that I have such a small garden that I cannot have a water feature and an annuals garden so the annuals and bulbs have to go. I will be enjoying grape hyacinths, polyanthus and ranunculars for the last time this winter and spring. I am also getting rid of the bits of grass that are an excuse for a lawn but I am not giving up on a camomile lawn…except that now it will be a patch or mat so to speak. Here is the initial drawing. I will keep you posted.
