Thanks to Eric Carle, there can't be a child in the land who isn't familiar with the life cycle of the butterfly. Our British butterflies are beautiful but quite modest, unlike the whoppers that are floating around the hot house at Wisley at the moment. This has become an annual event for us and I don't think I will ever get tired of it. Queuing for ages to get in is tiring though but this year a booking system has been introduced. Book now if you want to go during half term!
