I have been in my new place now for a week and to celebrate that, my sister and I went to a not so far away garden. Not just any garden either: a butterfly garden. Well, greenhouse really, because they were tropical butterflies. It wasn't big by any means, but it kept us occupied for part of the afternoon anyway.

The other one I got was of two of them, with their wings closed!
We saw some beautiful butterflies and we were able to photograph most of them on our phones (I had conveniently forgotten to take my camera, sigh). There was however one butterfly that proved to be a bit elusive, although we both managed to capture it eventually.
After the butterflies we made our way outside (in the drizzle) to visit a pheasantry (not a pheasant in sight) and a maze. As you may remember my sister has a system that always works in mazes. Apart from in this one, because there were so many dead ends. We did finally manage to find the center and then had to find our way back out again, which took nearly as much time as finding the center did!

Then it was time for tea and a scone/cake, since halfway through the maze, the drizzle had turned into rain and we both needed something warm and filling.
It was a lovely afternoon to celebrate my new home.
