Eden Through the Seasons - Early Spring Part One








I'm afraid I have been very slow putting these photos up here, I thought I had better get my finger out or it will be time for the summer photos.  Early spring at Eden saw the beautiful daffodils leading the way in the spring show of colour.  The pictures really don't do justice to the vibrancy of them.  Here are the photos taken outside of the biomes.  It was a cold March day but the flowers brought a feeling of sunshine to an overcast day.  I hope you enjoy them.



































The flowers really are beautiful with their gorgeous colours, but I also love the sculptures that you come across as you make your way around the site.



From the scary to the beautiful




I love this one the more you look, the more you spot.




Washing machine drums, irons, lawn mowers, computers.......what else can you spot?











There were also living sculptures made from willow.  I would love to make one of these  it will be interesting to see them in the summer.



Whoops how did that get here :)

  10. Is that make up artist very short or that actor very tall?

    1. They are lovely, I was tempted to buy some in Edens plant shop but if we are moving it's not worth it.

  13. Are the Hellebores expensive in their shop? here I have to pay anything from 10 euro up to 25 euro for the more unusual ones.
