Middle age

I am going to take a lavender bath and read Jane Austen. I am now officially middle-aged.

The cuties of Redmond

Just crafting, coloring, and making lots of noise, of course.

More creatures

Dodos and pangolins!

The Natural History collection

The other part of the Horniman Museum includes dozens of taxidermied creatures, many of them collected by Horniman himself in the Edwardian era. It was also full of schoolchildren on outings. One of them was heard to say, "if that tiger moved, I'd just stroke it. I LOVE tigers."

British signs

Continuing my collection of UK signage.

Inside and outside

I waited about five minutes for this blue morpho butterfly to open its wings. They are brown on the outside but when a predator gets too near they scare them off with the other side of their wings.

In the Butterfly House

I was expecting a few butterflies hiding behind leaves in an aquarium. Instead you walk into a jungle where the butterflies are fluttering around you and sometimes landing on you. There are mirrors as you leave so you can make sure there are no butterflies on you before you go back to the outside world.

Through Dulwich Park

Just walking through the neighborhood park.
