As I prepared to do some work in the front garden for a change, I noticed worms in the bottom of the pond.
Or perhaps they are not worms but something else that likes to inhabit fresh water.
My initial reaction was that the invertebrates had slithered in by mistake and drowned. But upon closer inspection, they were moving, so I can only suppose that they are at home there. And it’s exciting to think that activity is happening in the pond area already.
Not so exciting is the following:
I’ve chuntered about plastic waste in the front garden before. But it never ceases to dismay me. I’m currently doing another MOOC by the University of Exeter, this time on solutions to climate change, and the theme this week has centred round the plastic in our oceans. However, today I’ve also seen an article by Friends of the Earth about plastic pollution in even the most remote waters of Britain.
At least the plastic pictured above has now gone in a bin and hopefully won’t get blown out when the refuge collectors take it away. I also managed to get some unwanted vegetation in either the compost bin or bag for the garden waste container at the dump.
