Thanks to the Hampton Court Flower Festival for inviting me down for a whole week to talk wildlife ponds with visitors. At our make-shift pond I managed to pond-dip with more than 2,000 families during the week, and talk to thousands more about ponds and the important role they play in nature. This was all part of my continued work with the RHS and the Wildlife Trust on their amazing Wild About Gardens campaign. (Don't forget, The Wildlife Pond Book is coming in September!).
I am hoarse, but happy! Now gonna rest for a few days.
Here's a quick view of the wildlife pond!
