ABC Wednesday - E for Eden

The Eden Project is a " global " garden built in a disused quarry near Newquay in Cornwall and has some of the largest greenhouses in the world.

For more information just " google " Eden Project.




This fellow can be found in the gardens - if you look closely you'll see that he's made of scrap metal and bits and pieces of discarded electrical appliances.

If you go to Cornwall you'll enjoy a visit here - allow a full day ..

The sculpture looks like a humongous insect that wants into Eden. Great shot and a good choice for letter E.

Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

Say it as it is ......


Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
