Eden Project

On Monday we managed to get Hugo up early, so we could spend a few hours at Eden.
It was lovely, sunny & incredibly hot in the biomes...

100s of coins thrown into the waterfall!

We love Education Otherwise's Logo.
School Is Not Compulsory.  

We walked up to the Rainforest Lookout last year...

Baobab Smoothie with coconut milk & fresh mint - it was really good!

A bird feasting on papaya...

A cool breeze at the entrance to the rainforest biome!

Vegan strawberry sorbet

A chap having a massage in the Med biome...

The olive oil trail...

The stage is being prepared ready for the Eden Sessions.

A beautiful bee!

The vegan grub was also gluten free... Sime's piled up plate (of course).
We had an aubergine spiral thing which was just ok, new potatoes & salad... We found it all a bit dry really, so the bowl of leek & oatmeal gloop soup we shared, also got used as a sauce!

The mugs above the tables...

They provide jugs of water on each table, so you can just grab a mug.


A lovely day with our not so little chappy!

Hope you're having a good weekend.

Kay & Sime

Oh, wow, would I ever be in heaven there! It looks like such a wonderful time. What a gorgeous place.

do you use vegan and/or natural cleaning products in your holiday let cleaning? I'd love to see a blog post about your favourite cleaning methods and products if so!

Wow that looks great. I really must start writing down my bucket list. It is all in my head which is not very good at remembering.

I could quite happily live in the plantation house. It seems that only vegans make good vegan food, non vegans have an odd idea of what tastes good.

And it only costs us £5 each for a local annual pass, so we can go as often as we like - which is nice!

Hi Liz - Thanks for your comment. We've used Bio D products for many years: & at home we use lemon juice, bicarb, vinegar, borax & soda crystals.

Here's a blog from a few weeks ago:

Hi Susan - Eden is definitely worth a visit!

Kay :)
We would too! There's also a great bamboo house in the rainforest biome - which we'd be very happy with...

You're right about the food - it was just very bland!

Kay :)

What a cool place to visit!
Looks like you all had a really great day.
Happy Sunday!

It all looks just wonderful, I can't wait to go there myself. Such blue skies too!
Thanks for commenting with that book you suggested, I bet Dil and I would both enjoy that. I shall see if I can reserve it at our library.

Your £5 pass is a real bargain when an adult ticket costs £23. Though I'm glad to see that they offer a reduction to visitors arriving by public transport.
There are some lovely plants in your photos! And the famous strawberry sorbet too! I must go to the Eden Project one day!

Lovely photos. Glad you enjoyed your day out. I wouldn't mind visiting again if I lived nearer.

Ryton Organic Gardens is well worth a visit if you are ever near Coventry, but that's somewhere else I can't get to very often.

Our garden yesterday. Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now. This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower. ~ Edward Thomas ~ Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem! Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine... Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food. Nettles are ric

Diet And Drugs

Some of you know about my fight with Graves Disease, an auto immune system disorder, which causes an overactive thyroid. Since I was diagnosed 7 years ago, I have made it my business to know everything I possibly could about the condition & this has probably saved my life. I have blood tests on a regular basis & in November last year, I was told that my T4 levels are normal & again in January the same.  My thyroid stimulating hormone was finally starting to work too, after 7 years of lying dormant, so I suggested I came off the anti thyroid drug & my GP's response was to continue for a while longer. A month ago, I rang my GP & suggested again that I come off the drug or at least halve it, as I was feeling so well  & was concerned about the drug pushing me into being under active. Again, she said to be patient & they would send for me when it's time for a blood test. I don't normally do as I'm told, but decided to stick with it a b

Taking The Plunge

Life is set to change again for us. We have had a great time entertaining many B&B guests, but now have decided to stop & concentrate on the things that are far more important. Firstly, ourselves... Sharing our home with many strangers is quite exhausting & Sime in particular has worn himself out giving his all, something neither of us had really noticed until we stopped. Secondly, Bebe (Sime's mum) is going to be moving in with us... Her dementia is progressing, though the conditions she was continuing to live in were obviously not helping. We feel she has been let down by the social care support team, her carers seemed to be excellent on the surface, but in reality - she has been badly neglected. On our last visit, we found her flat in a terrible state. The cleaner had disappeared, her hairdresser had stopped going in & some of the carers didn't even bother to feed her! On top of all this, she has been phoning the police about her hot water &am
