After lunch he took us down to the pond where we saw hundreds of tadpoles basking in the sun. The newts are in the pond now too. Tadpoles are their favourite food, "without newts the country would be overrun with frogs" as Jack delicately put it!

Of course the main attraction of the day was visiting the bluebells which are in full glorious flower at the moment. A few of us managed to get into the glade and on the ground to get this beautiful pic.

Finally I brought cut and come lettuce, rocket, texel greens and oriental leaves to get our weekly salad at lunch time going. Maudie, Tom and Miriam transplanted them into the tunnel, leaving a piece at the end for Jack to plant chilli's and later on cucumbers on a wigwam support.
