Dragonflies are beautiful - have you ever seen one up close and looked at their wings? Did you know though that they've been around for hundreds of millions of years?!?!

Hopefully our pond once built is going to attract dragonflies among lots of other insects. However, they'll start off as an egg or larvae and exist in our pond as larvae or nymphs. They eat other insects, tadpoles and fish that live there before climbing out of the water and emerging as themselves!

To help us reach our pond goal, please sponsor the children who have been walking hard via our JustGiving link: www.justgiving.com/campaign/pondtopondchallenge

It’s our last postcard today 😢 A huge thank you to Natalie Wood for putting these together for us every week 🙏🏻 We’ve loved sharing all this pond information with you and we hope you’ve enjoyed reading them!

For the last few days of our challenge we’re going to look at what pond life we can expect to find in our pond once we get it 🤞🏻 But we still have some km’s and £‘s to clock up! So let’s have one final push to get some sponsorship money for the children’s walking efforts so we can reward them with their pond. Please copy the link below and share, share, share! 💛

How amazing is the colour of this pond in Japan?

This amazing blue pond was man-made to protect the local town of Biei from mudflows in case of the eruption of Mount Tokachidake.

❓Did You Know....?
The colour comes from the accidental presence of aluminium hydroxide which in the pharmaceutical industry is used as an antacid and when used in vaccines it helps stimulate an immune response.
...
Not long to go now until our Pond to Pond challenge finishes! Will the children finish their 1,000km in time? Will we reach our sponsorship goal of £2,500?? Please share our Just Giving link below with family and friends and give the children one last cheer on to help them reach their goal.

This week we’re visiting Turkey AND Japan! How beautiful are these pools found in Pumukkale, Turkey?

Pumukkale meaning “White Castle” is known for its white travertine terraces which are a natural wonder. There are about 17 of these pools formed over hundreds of years through the build up of water from the thermal springs. It starts as a soft jelly like substance and solidifies over time.

❓Did you know….the pools have water ranging in temperature from 35 to 100 degrees celcius so you can sit in them and enjoy a long mineral rich soak!
