I was meant to be in Norfolk meeting up with a bunch of friend. Alas events meant I didn't want to be far from Dad so it will be rearranged.
Trish however has delivered my 80-400 :) So we went on a local tour.
Butterfly World near St Albans is not fully open. The big biome opens in Autumn 2013 but there is a small house open.
Interesting toilet design :)
The leaf cutter Ants are impressive
The gardens are designed to attract native Butteflies but the cloudy weather this morning was not conducive.
As we were in the area we popped into Shaw's Corner a small house built in 1902 that from 1906 to his death in 1950 was the country house of Sir George Bernard Shaw.
Nearby is Ayot St Lawrence Church. Not something you expect to find in the English countryside. Thought it might surprise Trish.!
And to finish a stroll along the river at Dobbs Weir
