Someone who we are keeping in touch with over the lockdown is creating a Reparium and Algae Tank - bringing the outdoors indoors - the Reparium creates an edge of a pond and they keep snails etc in there. They also go to the graveyard and spot mushrooms and are trying to grow a crop of papyrus.
"Some pics of the 'house pond' - we fixed up, landscaped and planted an old tank the binmen helped me drag in last year. Too small for anything but the snails, which are plenty amusing. The air plants hanging above are loving the change. The tiny ferns (❤️) and broken slate were relocated from the ginnel, branches etc from Swinton Grove park/St Saviour's. We are rather chuffed with the result."
