|Chris filling up the pond!|
It was the last Saturday before our last open gardens and a major pond clearance was under way. Chris was in waders in the deepest part of the pond surrounded by waterlilies when he managed to disturb a wasp's nest in the bank! Suddenly he was under attack by swarms of furious wasps. There was a humungus amount of splashing as he made his escape through the water lilies and back on to dry land but not before they stung his arm. I was despatched to deal with the nest and managed to crawl under the Acer and dispense copious amounts of wasp killing powder in the nest entrance. The nest was left overnight and today, work recommenced with not a wasp in sight!
The pond had a thorough tidy and top up and all lights checked. Dave of DSM Electrical Installations fame even turned out on a Bank Holiday weekend to fix the light in the culvert. What a star!! So........we're nearly ready for tomorrow night. I did say 'nearly' as we have to set up the conservatory and then hope for dry weather!
