July is always a month with plenty going on in the pond and bog, 2012 has been no different. The plants all continued to do excellently and there were many frogs, of all sizes, to be seen sitting in the and around the pond. As well as frogs there was also still a few tadpoles that had been slower to develop.
Plenty of lush green growth in and around the pond - good for "froglets" to stay hidden.
After June's yellow Iris flower, this time it was the turn of another Iris plant.
One of a number of frogs seen around the pond enjoying a moment of rare Scottish summer sun!
After the rain comes the sun.....and the waterlily flower is looking nice too.
Pond Skater, this year there has been quite a few Pond Skaters around the pond.
The bog is looking good, and the plants that were planted in April 2011 are looking well established.
