I have been looking forward to this week ever since Rhi announced she was coming back for a week. Rhi my daughter that I haven’t seen for ten months was here. A girl loyal and loving to her family and a death sentence to those committing crime against her loved ones. A few perpetrators had found to their cost that a plea for clemency found only a clemency shortage.
Rhi and biomes
My prodigal daughter arrived calmer more adult than ever before and I had a great week. The highlight a day with Rhi to myself at the local garden of Eden, The Eden Project a local homage to ecology at a truly godly price of admission. A place in the drizzle of Cornwall with greenhouses disguised as remnants of giant bubble wrap you can find a chunk of rain forest or a taste of tundra. Garnished with sundry art works that in a different setting would not be out of place in a Kneehigh play. In other words magical with a suggestion of the unworldly. Including animals you can recycle. Horses that you can carry to water but don’t need a drink.

A green place both in the colour and the ecological sense. You must remember your fruit.or lose your car.So many carparks all named after fruit. This was a day for relaxing in good company whilst remaining alert enough to take sneaky photographs.
Rhi a true believer in recycling clothes modelling here cardi coveted from sister
Rhi tried all the shortcuts commenting on how narrow they were whilst being skinny. Whilst someone skinny as a fatter almost 17 stone rake followed.
Three scultures(ps its a leg in the middle one)
So we walked down the hill reminiscing and taking pictures
Giant bubblewrap greenhouses
Beauty in the eye of the Bee Sculpture
He’s behind you!
So after the Bee it was time to enter the hot humid rainforest dome
Birds in the bush
Stopping for a Baobab smoothie
Before leaving the dome for a more local brew
Rhi then discovered smokers welcome somewhere else
Into the Mediterranean dome
Next stop Burrito’s then Eden gift shop before heading for the fruit that would find the car.
Thank you for a lovely day out Rhi
