One Year Pond Study

Inspired by Ticia’s idea to collate all my Native American Posts in one place, I thought I would tidy up my blog a bit and create posts which did the same for other topics.

In anticipation of our next nature study which will be a one year study of the nature in our garden, I have popped all of our pond posts into a separate post and created a Nature Page at the top of my blog.
