    The bridge is a nice feature, always something different being able to take a short cut across the pond.:smile:
    It should help in keeping the water clear as well, as about one third of the water area is under the bridge out of strong daylight.

      Sounds lovely @Upsydaisy just need the sun to come back out!

      Thanks @pete hopefully the bridge will help create a bit of shade, it's nice being able to stand on the bridge and look into the pond and handy for netting out any leaves etc in the middle. We've tried to make the little patio area a kind of secret garden you access via the bridge and plan to fill it with scent.

      Definitely hope to spend many happy hours out there, good for the soul :spinning:

        Amelanchier blossom, I missed my chance to take pictures in full bloom due to non stop rain, still looking lovely but blossom already beginning to fall.

                Thankyou @Upsydaisy
                Made the most of the sunshine today, nice to see all the little birds and hear all the bees buzzing around after lots of rain over the past few days.

                  Too true it's the same here too, I've been out there for most of the day and it's so uplifting to see and here Spring bursting to life all around. The birds in particular are so busy nest building.

                  You'll have a really super Summer in your gorgeous garden @Sienna's Blossom .....guaranteed.:biggrin::dbgrtmb:

                            I just love orange roses.
