I kept Z at home today and we visited Bristol Zoo Gardens, to see the Christmas Eve lion cubs. We managed to catch a glimpse before they were taken by the keepers to be given vaccinations. I'd never visited the Butterfly Forest before and it captivated V who loved watching them flutter around her. I must post a photo of V soon - yesterday she surprised us all by clapping on request! The Zoo Gardens are beautiful as well, laid out with picnic areas, open spaces and lots of spring colour. The magnolias and tree blossom were stunning and despite a rainy start we were lucky the sun came out briefly and brightened our day.
Also, a big hello to Lou from Little Green Shed as we bumped into each other for the first time today, so nice to meet you, Lou!
