a second pond & latest on orchids

Well I have a 2nd pond in the garden I decided to make a pond in a half barrel. It has been filled with rainwater and has a sand substrate. Just deciding what to do with it perhaps planting up with aquatics perhaps.

This morning I took a photo of one of the orchids which is emerging in its pot. Very excited to have three orchids growing after losing the southern marsh orchid to the wife and over zealous mowing of the lawn.

I may place the orchids out around the pond this year. At least they will be protected by the pond from the mower!
