Come and get up close with a large tree nymph, also known as a paper kite butterfly.  From today, face masks must be worn in the Butterfly House and Shop.

And so begins the short 12 day life of this lovely forest queen butterfly (Euxanthe wakefieldi). So many beauties on show in the Butterfly House until the end of September...

GARDEN SHED
This enchanting little garden kiosk, dripping with Himalayan Musk roses, is at the entrance of the Seaforde Gardens in N. Ireland.  Add peacocks flaunting their colors throughout the garden and you’re in a fairy tale! 💕

Seaforde Garden in County Down boasts Ireland’s oldest living maze and an illustrious collection of exotic plants collected and curated from the far corners of the world.
