Hubby took me to Eden Project in Cornwall. We stayed at a small boutique style B&B which served the most amazing (unexpected) full cooked vegetarian breakfast of haloumi, home made sweetcorn fritters, tomato, mushrooms, toast, and a help yourself bowl of fresh fruit (strawberry, pomegranate, raspberry, blueberry, mango), yoghurts, honey - pots of tea! all included in our price - The bed was comfy with luxurious fresh, ironed cotton sheets. I felt it was worth mentioning as they are such lovely friendly people (they even have spare reading glasses available!).

The day at Eden was crammed, there is so much to see.
The flower (above) Titan Arum is due to bloom any day - only for 48 hours!
My favourite part of Eden is the allotment area - full of old fashioned allotment gardening with vegetables in neat rows - nice old sheds and terracotta pots, foxgloves were everywhere, one of my favourites.
I did not see many bees - there are three hives in the gardens and there is, of course, this pretty bee structure with some info about bees .... but I think that as they expand and improve it would be lovely to see much more on bees - our planet cannot survive without them - a glass wall with a one way mirror to view hives would be wonderful.
That's all for now. Betty :D
