The pond has become somewhat overgrown since then.
A couple of weeks ago I had been pond dipping with the year 7s. We had found dragonfly nymphs and I knew we had them in our pond - they usually are found in the net when I am dredging the bottom.
Today I went to look at how things are since the storms of the last few days.
And the ugly nymphs have cast off their brown outer cases to reveal a beautiful new coat.
Oh and I went for a run this morning in the sunshine :>)
