We have a tiny new pond. It has irises and pond plants which are green and frondy. There are about 8 tadpoles. They grow rather slowly, I was expecting more sudden changes.
So it just goes to show how much education I missed as a child. It's lovely to find things out for real as a parent, to rush inside shouting guess what, come and look at this...The children humour me and come to see. Sometimes they are the ones to shout for us to come and see.
