We had some old carpet which was too damaged to use inside, but it made for a good bit of ground cover!
Apparently escalonia can cope with a very hard prune, and should come back with fresh new shoots. We decided to test this on one individual escalonia stem, which needed a prune anyway.
The patio base and a bit more path are now largely complete.
Since our pond is only a temporary one, we donated most of the frogspawn to a neighbour with a new pond. However, we left a bit behind, and the first tadpoles have hatched.
They are so small (less than 1cm long) that it’s rather hard to get a good picture…
Spring continues apace… I love how at this time there is something fresh and new every week!
