Eden Project...
















Last week, whilst we were in Cornwall, we happily spent the day wandering the gardens and Biomes of The Eden Project.
An absolute favourite place of ours, if never fails to inspire us.  Beautiful rows of dahlias, sweet corn, ruby chard and lavender occupy the steep banks. Whilst inside the space age Biomes, the tropics take over.
The heat is always there, especially on the hottest days in July.  Muggy, humid and unbearable.  It reminds me, always, of my days travelling through mosquito countries, Indonesia, Thailand, India.  
I love how my boys gallop through the green leaves of the banana and bamboos, searching round the next corner, like proper explorers.
If you are heading down Cornwall way, The Eden Project is a MUST.

I love the Eden Project.
This has been my 4th visit in the 10 years of it being opened, and this visit was by far the best.
Everything has grown!
The tropical rainforest in the large biome is now so huge, I actually forgot I was in this country.  Several times I started thinking I was back in South East Asia, especially now that we are allowed in the little bamboo house.  Memories of sleeping mosquito netted hammocks came flooding back.
The allotment area is my favourite, that and the wild flower meadows that cover the banks as you walk in.
The boys love the hands on activities, the story telling and the sense of freedom it offers.
If you ever come to Cornwall, make this place high on your list.
You won't be disappointed.
