I promised to return with this post from the Eden Project in Cornwall continuing just as we were about to enter the Mediterannean Zone. I have to admit I prefer this dome to the Tropical Zone, but I can’t explain why. It simply feels more comfortable.
The structure of the dome reflects the framework supporting these vines.
It was the plants that flowered so full of colour that made this dome so exciting.
Arid plantings contrasted strongly with the brighter Med plantings, and it is the structure and texture of the arid plants that made them so attractive.
I will finish this look at the Eden Project biomes with a couple of photos of some lively sculpture.
In a future Cornwall holiday post I will share our visit to the other Tim Smitt project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
