Westcliffe Manor have been getting to know the most attractive members of the butterfly family.
Thanks to Linda, the daughter of a resident, Westcliffe Manor have been able to release ‘Painted Lady’ butterflies into their garden. Released at the end of April when the blossom was on the fruit tree, the residents were able to learn about the process of rearing and releasing these beautiful butterflies successfully.
The photographs taken on the day do little justice to the close up view everyone had when the butterfly was placed upon the flowers.
Westcliffe Manor now have the idea using their butterfly images for cards or invitations.
