Autumn at Eden

In primary school it wasn't often that we embarked on a school trip that wasn't to the Eden Project. Visiting it again after quite some time made me feel like I was seven years old again. I can remember running through the Rainforest Biome with my jumper tied around my waist, a forehead damp with sweat and a gappy grin plastered on my face thanks to a recent visit from the tooth fairy. The red cylinder of spikes that are classed as a plant in the picture below is actually the plant I picked to draw for my final art work piece in year 4. I have absolutely no clue what it is called but I didn't want to be like the other girls in my class sketching out pretty pink petals. The red spiky stick would do me nicely.

Nowadays, the jungle of plants at Eden look exactly how I remembered them. I, on the other hand, am probably a bit taller and the gappy grin is a lot more full thanks to numerous dreaded trips to the lair of the Orthodontist. Here are a collection of photographs taken on my more recent stroll amongst the plants.
