Pond life - Insect life (3)


The plumber has called and he has fixed the faulty part in the pump control mechanism - so the water tank is starting to fill up again. Relief!
The insects zooming around the pond were none the wiser, thank goodness, disaster averted. I have finally managed to get a snap of the big turquoise Dragonfly as he was soaring around the big yellow digger - somehow reminiscent of 'Diving bell & butterfly'? Also the yellow Damselflies have taken a liking to the reed that grows next to the big rock.

Cara Yvonne,

Thanks again for your tips and hints concerning lavenders. And Grazie Dio, your well works again. It seems to consume a lot of your energy. Hope you can enjoy a swim inbetween "disasters".

By the way... a stupid question, I am sure, but.... do plants keep insects away. Or how do you biologically manage to keep them away?????

Bacione, Ingrid
