And then there's the butterfly...


`You may observe a Bread-and-Butterfly. Its wings are thin slices of Bread-and-butter, its body is a crust, and its head is a lump of sugar.' ...
Taken from Alice in Wonderland.




Today Alex and I went to Tropical World in Roundhay in Leeds. I was super excited to discover that they had a Sloe Lorris which is one of my favourite animals, and we even spotted a meerkat who was quite the cheeky chappie! I was also really impressed by the butterfly rooms, some of them were so big they were more like bats!
Entry was around £3.50 per adult, so it was such a cheap hour of fun and I'd like to go back there again at some point. The gardens next to it are beautiful too and were packed since it was a beautiful day, I'm sure I'll be visiting them one day this summer <3

I hope you all had a lovely weekend, what did you get up to?

    1. So do I, I also feel much more at home when I have an animal around me (strange I know). That's why we have 2 rabbits! :) x
