We’re a British family living in Copenhagen, a wonderful place to live.
We’re making a new pond in our garden and this is our blog describing the process of making it and (hopefully) eventually a record of the plants and animals we hope to attract to share our garden with us.
Although ponds and marshes have been something of a lifelong passion, we’ve been particularly inspired by the ideas behind the Million Ponds Project of the British freshwater habitats trust. Amphibians are under pressure globally, as are many invertebrate species, adding a pond to our garden is probably the single biggest enhancement we can make to our local ecosystem.
Under the influence of the highly readable “no nettles required” book about the wildlife value of gardens, we have been gardening for wildlife for some time, this is our first opportunity to rewild a little and add something valuable back to Nature.
It seems we’ve made a lot of gardening posts now and this blog has also taken a left turn into food, drink and Copenhagen family life.
We now have an instagram account
