The Nettle and the Butterfly

We read this book today.

I think the text was possibly too detailed for Miles and insufficiently detailed for Hermione, however, we all enjoyed the fantastic colourful illustrations.

We now have two beautiful caterpillar hotels here in which we hope to watch the metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly - just as soon as we find a caterpillar looking for four star treatment with a guaranteed supply of nettles.

WE've recently purchased a butterfly garden from insectlore.

I thought about buying a kit but then we read about it in Nick Bakers Bug Book and it all sounded really easy. It has been easy making the hotel - it's just finding the little rascals that's proving tricky :-) If we don't get some soon I'm going to resort to buying some.

What stage are yours at?
