Painted Ladies go Wild

On Thursday I was lucky enough to be in the garden when the Paynes came to release their Painted Lady butterflies into the wild.
By then the sun had come out so the nectar was flowing.
 There were plenty of lovely flowers for them to enjoy.

The Paynes raised the butterflies at home in the special cage and chose to release them in our garden whilst staying at the 
Sunrise Yurt. How lovely is that.

They were encouraged to come out, where they sat poised on hands until they fluttered off to find flowers.


Later as I was gardening, I saw several of them still fluttering around the flowers.
What a lovely experience for the children and indeed the adults.
A great way for children to learn about the world around them. 
Thank you to the Paynes for releasing them into our garden.
