Family & Days Out

Our Day At The Eden Project

During our holiday to Cornwall last week, we visited the Eden Project.

Unfortunately, it was a very wet day, which meant we missed pretty much every single thing outside, and rushed by it all with our heads down, desperately trying to get out of the torrential downpours! I would advise going on a dry day, if possible, as there’s so much to see outside, and we ignored it all.

We did have a good look around the very lovely shop and the restaurant. The restaurant do great lunch boxes for children, and a range of cakes, pasties and hot food for adults. It’s a nice eating area, too. And then there are the biomes.

There are two biomes, the Rainforest and Mediterranean. The array of flora and fauna there was dazzling, and so much of it I’d not seen before. I took lots of shots, though do excuse the fact that the lens kept getting steamed up in the Rainforest so a few photos may be misty…

All of those were taken in the Rainforest biome, so very exotic looking, and I haven’t a clue what they are, I just found them fascinating to look at! You need to bear in mind that during this visit, there wasn’t much time to pause and read about the various plants and flowers, as I had a crazy 4 year old loving it in there, and running about exploring!

And then in the Mediterranean biome, I was captivated by the tulips. There were just so many, the scents were beautiful and the array of colours and varieties stunning…

This all reignited my love for tulips, as they’ve always been a favourite, but I feel I now need more! So I’ll be adding a pot collection area in the garden, as part of my ongoing redesign, so that I can have plenty out there.

Have you been to the Eden Project? Do you know the names of everything I’ve photographed?!
