Swimming

Our Natural Swimming Pool is warming up- incredably reaching 19 degrees C on the bank holiday. We have started swimming every day-even before school in the mornings, it is so addictive- the water feels amazing! Reeds are shooting out of the water and marginals flowering around the pool edges. Bright yellow marsh marigolds, pretty white Caltha, fragrant Aponogetum, and blue water forget me nots. Lily leaves are rising to the surface and below the water there is a whirl of pond life amongst the oxygenators. This year we have also seen a few newts-so pretty, like miniature dinosaurs.
