We are very fortunate to live within striking distance of Wakehurst Place, which is "Kew in the country". The children have been loving their "Adventurous Journeys"; we have been twice this week! Wakehurst has put a lot of effort into conserving meadowland, which is a great natural habitat for flowers and insects. They also have hives to pollinate all those wild flowers. The results were obvious today; the butterflies, grasshoppers and bees were out in force!
