Beautiful butterflies at Hengist Field Care Home

For the past few weeks at Hengist Field Care Home we’ve been watching our caterpillars grow and then turn into chrysalises, and we were finally treated to them emerging into wonderful butterflies.

On Tuesday 14 May we took them around our Home for everyone to enjoy for the last time before their release – we even had a beautiful human butterfly to take them around!

In the afternoon, we gathered everyone outside in the garden who wished to join us, and we set all the butterflies free. It was so lovely to watch them and once they had all flown away, everyone clapped and cheered.

We’ve all really enjoyed watching this amazing natural life cycle.
