Frogs Welcome Here!!

DS has decided we need a pond for Frogs and other wildlife. Off we went to the allotment to plant some stuff etc and, 3 hours later, here is a hole. DS dug it ALL himself and has made a pretty neat job of it in my opinion. Next weekend the pond liner etc goes in. DS is going to landscape it with 'frog friendly' plants (whatever they are) and a ramp-type arangement for newts etc to get in and out. The pond will be slightly sloping and will be filled/topped up by a clever system involving the roof of the sun house, guttering, and an irrigation system for the fruit bushes next to the pond. DS seems to have got it all worked out. I blame it all on Bill Oddie and Kate Humble.........
