On weekdays in January the National Botanic Garden of Wales (NBGW) is free to enter and so we took a mid week opportunity of some clear weather to visit. We have been many, many times over the years since it opened in 2000 and always enjoy the developing growth and changing arrangements of plants, borders and other features such as the bug hotels.
There is a lot to see and explore there even in the middle of winter and on this occasion we were surprised by the current entertainment of butterflies in the hot house.
This is not the best environment for cameras on a cold winter day as the sudden change in temperature and humidity when we entered immediately made me blind as a result of glasses steaming up and the condensation appearing on the camera was the same. I covered it up quickly and used my iPhone instead. I’ll post more images on the StillWalks Facebook page through the week.
