big blue butterfly

We visited Seaforde Gardens and Butterfly House this afternoon. It is a really lovely place, with an attractively ramshackle butterfly house, gorgeous gardens and a really excellent cafe.

And, on a sunny July afternoon, there were only about 10 cars in the car park. Wheras ten miles down the road in Newcastle, there will be traffic jams and crowds all summer. Go figure.

This blue butterfly took a shine to my daughter and sat on her hand for almost half an hour (she had dipped a finger in some honey water).
