....... I have a tortoise shell butterfly in my bathroom that is trying to sleep. but the heat of the bath wakes it up and it flaps about in the blinds and i am afraid it might damage itself. I would normally just put it outside but it is very cold out there and i fear i might just be putting it to its death.
Any ideas anyone. Do i leave it till spring and hope it does not injure itself or put it out now, where it might freeze?
Only 2 more baths till March for me.Will it be ok?
We found one upstairs the other day - OH put it in a quiet corner of the garage (it's cool but doesn't freeze in there as it's joined to the house). Have you a shed, garage, log store, loft where it would be better off?
