My mini Nature Reserve

Photos taken 22nd July 2020

Going in! The butterflies like to warm up on the woodchip path.

The marjoram is a real magnet for the insects; butterflies, bees, hoverflies, ladybirds and other beetles.

It’s all getting rather full, but not overgrown!

Heading down to the new bench (made from an old pallet) placed under the shade of the ash tree.

The bench gives me a place to sit and enjoy all the wildlife.

The newly-installed pond, sited just in front of the bench so I can sit and wait for the frogs to arrive. I now need to add plants around the pond.

The view from the bench, looking back up the length of the allotment.
