Home now, and more laundry than you can shake a stick at. Yesterday Fred played with Jarvis for 11 hours (miss him much?!). Rob went to the allotment and brought back lots of runner beans, courgettes, beetroot and blackberries.
I found an interesting caterpillar, and identified it as a buff ermine moth caterpillar.
This morning we went to Ashridge. I haven't been for a while, and they've made some changes. There is a wild wood playground - it's lovely. Fallen trees have been used to make a play structure, and they've carved nature pictures into the wood. The kids really enjoyed it.
The visitors centre is much improved, and we spent quite a while looking at skulls, and stuffed animals, and doing various activities.
A new pair of wooden sculptures stand outside the centre. They are absolutely beautiful - two WW1 soldiers (an officer and a private), carved from two trees.
The kids hadn't wanted to come out this morning, and had such a good time that they then didn't want to go home!
