Last week, we ended up heading over to RHS Wisley to see the Butterflies in the Glasshouse, an event which happens every February.
Last year was our first time going, which I wrote about here.
This time, not much was different, though as it had only recently opened, it wasn’t crowded at all. Which was nice.
We were able to see some butterflies.
We saw some beautiful flowers.
And all from inside a beautiful building which, as other people began to wilt from the heat, was just the right temperature for me.
Josh seemed to enjoy himself too.
And despite his running off to chase after the butterflies, I think I managed to get a few cute photos of him.
Though I’m especially pleased with this one.
Mainly because I have a very similar photo taken of him last year while visiting the butterflies.
My baby is growing up.

Tim had heard through some other parents that we should make a visit to the Royal Horticulture Society at Wisley, and soon, as they currently are having a butterfly exhibit which only lasts a few more days.
RHS Wisley is basically a massive garden with large lawns and beautifully landscaped areas. It also has a library, garden shop, glasshouse and most importantly 3 cafes, one which even has a soft play area for small children! Perfect for Josh.
It’s only about a ten minutes drive from us so we decided to visit yesterday before the butterfly exhibit closed.
The exhibit was located in the glasshouse, a really beautiful building, and more importantly, warm!
We had to wait in line for about 20 minutes to get in to see the butterflies and it was very busy; I suppose a combination of it being half term and the exhibit coming to a close.
But we did eventually make it inside and were able to see lots of beautiful butterflies. Josh was very good and really enjoyed pointing the butterflies out and watching them float over and around our heads.
