RINGLET BUTTERFLIES AT OXBURGH HALL, NORFOLK


RINGLET BUTTERFLIES AT OXBURGH HALL, NORFOLK

Oxburgh Hall 1

A fine medieval, moated great house, dating from 1482 with additions – mainly Victorian – and renovations. It is now a National Trust property. There are small formal gardens, some well-planted borders with many bee- and butterfly-friendly flowers, a thriving kitchen garden, and large areas of grassland and meadow all around the house. There’ll be more from this house in due course; for now, here are some ringlets, one of several plentiful butterfly species. Apologies to the ones caught in flagrante delicto, not that they noticed…

    1. Thank you Amelia. I’ve never seen so many of these at one time – fine weather, I guess. Oxburgh Hall is a great example of stately ‘less is more’ gardening. A few wonderful flowerbeds, both formal and informal; otherwise, lawn or long grass / meadow with cut paths through it.
