Botany Club Outing: There is a visit to the private section of the park of the Chateau des Ormes on Saturday 18 May. Meet at 2.30 pm in the grand place in Les Ormes on the D910 (at the lights, on the right, if you are coming from Tours).

  1. Une belle série de photos . Si les fleurs ont rattrapé leur retard, je trouve que les papillons sont peu nombreux dans la zone que j'observe régulièrement.

  2. Lucie: These are from 2 years ago in fact. This year butterfly numbers are even more seriously down than last year it seems to me. I haven't done my May survey to compare yet though.
