Taking a quick look at a pond in a demonstration wildlife garden in a prominent London location backed by information from a major conservation organisation.

So what do we have……..

It’s my day for getting depressed about what people are shown as representative of ‘ponds’.

A steep-side, over deep, hole filled with the standard lilies, iris and polluted water.

I blame the advice leaflet that says:

‘Place a layer of soil over the bottom of the pond to allow plants to grow and cover the edge with soil and turf’.

The sad thing is that I expect a lot of effort and goodwill has gone into this and its a shame that things couldn’t turn out better.

Looking again, the photograph is flattering – you can’t see how scummy it is (still, at least there were some taddies).
