The Butterfly House In Haga Park

Yesterday we went on a wonderful trip to the butterfly house, in Haga park (the Royal family’s ‘garden’).

It was so very nice!

Alfie took his bike to practise..

He and I observed the beautiful lupins…

There were other creatures there among the butterflies, such as fish, tortoise, frogs, bugs, and birds..

Set in a gorgeous ‘rainforest’ type environment, it wasn’t long before we spotted some huge cocoons..

This was amazing – you could literally see the butterflies coming out of the cocoons before your eyes – even Ted was able to grasp this concept, after many hours of reading the ‘Hungry Caterpillar’!
And of course, many many butterflies, flying all around us…

Afterwards we had a long look at the amazing new shark tank, where Leon and I listened to a talk, while the others got lunch ready…

Unfortunately my camera ran out of battery around this time – but not before I could take a photo of each and every one of my gorgeous brood… ! 😉
