I’ve got to tell you, the last episode of Gardener’s World we watched had Monty talking about his wildlife pond and how they had just moved it and that everyone ought to be patient when they put one in. Something about giving it a year for animals to move in.
Ha! I exclaimed at the television, Rich, and our pets. As my head began to inflate with pride- seeing as how I’m now the creator of an above average pond- I boasted to the room that we had toads and frogs in our pond 2 weeks after it was in the ground! Of course they all knew that already, but my ego wouldn’t be tamed!
I kid (sort of), but I thought it would be fun to share some of the photos the trail camera/camera trap has caught (I’ll share some I’ve taken the old fashioned way with an iPhone in a later post). I don’t think we’ll ever stop being excited about what we see and find down there, or being in awe of the things that just show up, as if out of the blue.
Of course we have gotten more than just feathered visitors.
I cannot recommend a wildlife pond enough if you have space. It doesn’t need to be huge or deep, nor does it need electricity, just a liner and some plants!
