The Eden Project
This out-of-this-world place is in Cornwall, England.
The Vice Chancellor's personal driver drove me and my supervisor and one other co- worker in a Beamer there one day (and in a suit with gold cuff links, too), and it absolutely took my breath away.
I have many beautiful photos, but here are a few.
For someone who appreciated just seeing the grass there, it really was overboard for me. I was overwhelmed!
The colors are actually a lot brighter in person, my phone camera couldn't even capture it all.
I love the texture on these red ones!
Yes, these are real.
You notice the scary trash sculpture in the background? That serves as a reminder not to leave the earth trashed. This place was a china clay mine, and when that was finished Cornwall was left with a huge gaping hole in the ground. So, they made it beautiful.
Love it!!! I always wanted a garden, and if I ever live somewhere where I can have one, now I have plenty of ideas for it. Excellent.
