the gardens of eden – the eden project

i haven’t really been doing much in the weeks leading up to school, and that dreaded first day is creeping ever nearer by the minute…so it was a nice change to get out of the house on monday and take the drive down to cornwall to go visit the eden project with my family! if you don’t know about this place, the eden project is a huge, huge garden full of plants from all over the world – a nature photographer’s heaven! you would not believe the amount of people running about with their cameras, and i was one of them ;3 so grab a chair, put your feet up and take a peek at some of the (good) pictures from my trip! trust me, i took a lot of duds…

  1. Your photos are great! That flower that reminded you of a lei looks like a hibiscus to me – they’re not native to New Zealand,but people do grow them in their gardens. I’d love to visit the Eden Project one day, and yes, believe it or not, I had heard of it, even way down here. Good luck with the first day of school thing, and the competition!
