I have been very busy recently, life just hasn’t stood still! I had a few days off last week when my parents came up for the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show which was fantastic, as well as other news to update you all with. Until then here is another post about what I got up to when I went home for Easter – enjoy! 🙂
When I was home for the Easter break I managed to pop back to the Eden Project early one morning before it opened to the public. It felt great to be back, wandering amongst the tropical plants in the Rainforest Biome it felt like I had never been away.

It’s weird to think this time last year I was working there, having no idea where I was going to end up after my apprenticeship – now look at me!
I’m living in a different part of the country, working in a totally different garden, all set to move to Wales in less than four months. Life couldn’t be more amazing and exciting right now! I live by the words “appreciate everything, regret nothing.”
Enough of my thoughts rambling on, back to Eden! The biome looked awesome, a few of my favourite plants were out such as Pachystachys lutea, also known as the Lollipop plant, and a gorgeous red Hibiscus flower.
I went to the top of the viewing platform and got some great aerial shots of the biome.

The sun was rising outside, making the silhouette of the biome even more dramatic in the morning light.

After reminiscing at Eden I stopped by the beach on the way home. Porthpean hadn’t changed, the sea was as bright and beautiful as ever. No matter where I go in the world, I’ll never forget Cornwall – I’ll always return home. 🙂
