So here is part two of the three posts this week. As I said, too many photos for just the one and they are themed differently. This is the Mediterranean Biome area at The Eden Project – in the right dome.
It was a lot cooler in here but again, full of interesting information and plants
I think my favourite thing were the massive, sprouting Mediterranean aloe vera plants. Aloe vera is excellent for when you have a little burn – cutting a bit off the plant and rubbing the juice on the wound really relieves it.
If you follow me on instagram, you will know that I am a little partial to a cactus or two. My collection appears to be growing by the week. These were really impressive – felt like we were back in Ibiza again. Happy days …
It felt like a sensory wander that we didn’t want to end. Colour galore, giant spiky leaves, delicate flowers and mediterranean fruits.
If you’ve ever been tempted to visit – you must go. It’s a fabulous experience.
There is also The Core Building to have a look around. It is based on the structure of a sunflower. Of course, loads of areas to check out outside too.
Then you can pop in to the shop on the way out. flower seeds, gardening tools and local foods. Oh … and some succulents. Yey !
Hopefully we can go back again soon as we have a pass that lasts a year – a good excuse to get there again in a different season and see what has changed.
Hope you have enjoyed this post ? Please do leave me a comment or tweet @lucylovesyablog.
The third one this week, was our trip to a hidden away Japanese garden. It was beautiful and has started us putting some ideas together for our own Asian inspired garden.
Don’t forget also, I update my instagram every day with new pics.
Thanks for reading.
