Did you enjoy April Fool’s Day?
My favourite item, brought to me by courtesy of my daughter Helen, was on Nature’s Calendar.
It suggested a butterfly, a new species to science – Aprilis baceolus - had been found in Kent.
Why have I blogged about it here? Because, as Helen pointed out, the word baceolus means stupid, slow-witted, unintelligent, inept, foolish, or silly.
