Butterflies in my garden

Try this – Close your eyes and describe the image that comes to mind on hearing the word ‘garden’. I tried this with my family while writing this piece and was surprised to hear the different responses that emerged. For my 6-year-old it was all about brightly coloured flowers and toys, her father spoke of cobbled pathways, birds chirping and greenery all around. For me, the word ‘garden’ always brings to mind an image of butterflies flitting around lots of plants in bright sunshine!
