At least this is what the Eden biomes look like in December twilight, and courtesy of some dodgy photography. I think the effect suits it – this bold and inspirational project to wake us up to the knowledge of our total dependence on plant life. For one thing – without trees we couldn’t breathe very well. It’s interesting that we’ve become so divorced from natural-world-reality that we do not instantly remember this, and from time to time (or even continuously) need it pointed out to us.
There’s more about the project in an earlier post: Making Eden: new patterns for living? And at the Eden Story you can see how a disused Cornish china clay pit was transformed into this world-famous educational visitor attraction that teaches us how to regenerate and nurture the Eden we have on earth. More power to their purpose.

Yes – we need to be reminded again and again – 🌱🍀🌱🍃
It sounds like a very inspiring place which I hope to visit some day.
I specially appreciated you second photo , it fascinates me…
And the whole topic is so interesting!
Go and see the Lost Gardens, too, while you are there.
What a magical image!
I prefer the Lost Gardens, but I do like your twilight image 🙂
Happy New Year Tish xx
The Lost Gardens are especially special, I agree, but biomes win hands down in deluging Cornish rain. A very happy new year to you too, Jude.
It was a very wet day in spring that we last visited the biomes 😉
Never visited, but i would love to when I next pop home.
Oh, watch the movie Martian. You will love it!
Sorry, that was bit ”out there”. You will understand the context when you see it, I promise. 😉
I’m sure I’ll cotton on, Ark 🙂 Or then again…
No, Tish, I promise when you see it you will get it and you will smile and say …right, so that’s what that nitwit from South Africa was going in about.
And it’s a great film as well.
I’ll look forward to it, dear not-nitwit
I set the links aside to read later, Tish. Thanks.
It’s a fabulous place! Don and I went a few year’s ago and loved it. What an inspirational place. I like the first photograph a lot!
Cheers, you two.
How wonderful. I wanted to visit Eden when I was in your part of the world but didn’t make it. I love reading about it. It is a truly inspirational project.
Inspirational indeed. It’s had over 30 million visitors since it opened in around 2000.
What a way to leave 2015. Thank you for twelve months of pleasures.
And thanks to you too, Meg. It’s been a good year swapping and sharing thises and thats.
Such a stunning shot Tish and a beautiful reminder. 😀 ♥
Cheers to you Sonel. And a very happy new year to you and yours.
Thanks for the lovely wishes Tish. Wishing you and your family the same. 😀 ♥
Whilst you were in the shelter of Eden how was Much Wenlock in all the rain. More flooding?
Well, thank you for asking, Ann. It seems we were lucky in Wenlock. It’s just very soggy. In fact we drove up southern and central England from Cornwall in full sun, though there were signs of overtopping streams and rivers here and there. The heavens did open though, as soon as we hit home turf. It’s to the north where people have most been afflicted. What a sorry state for them all. Flood damage takes months to recover from, and in all senses. Happy New Year while I’m here 🙂
Hope you continue to stay reasonably dry underfoot. 🙂
Wonderful…I must get down there this year….Janet:)
Very space-age. Looks like a fascinating place.
