Eden Project

Before ………and………. After

While we were away last week we visited the Eden Project in Cornwall. For those of you who don’t know what this is, a disused china clay quarry has been converted into the most amazing global gardens. I call them gardens, but it’s so much more. Huge biomes have been erected – like giant conservatories. Inside one is a rainforest containing nothing but tropical plants, the other is Mediterranean, and outside are such a variety of plants that it takes your breath away. I could tell you so much about it but it would take far too long. All I can say is that if you ever get the opportunity to go, please do so.

This is how it was summed up in the catalogue:

  • Take an exhausted, deep, steep-sided clay pit 60m deep, the area of 35 football pitches, with no soil, 15 metres below the water table.
  • Carve the pit into a flat-bottomed bowl and landscape the sides.
  • Mix and add 83,000 tonnes of soil made from recycled waste.
  • Add superb architecture that draws inspiration from nature to remind us of human potential.
  • Colonise with a huge diversity of plants, many that we use every day (but don’t often get to see).
  • Harvest the water draining into the pit and use it to irrigate our plants (and flush the loos!)
  • Season with people from all walks of life.

And by the way, I have the title for my Australian book. THE BILLIONAIRE’S BLACKMAIL BARGAIN. I think I told you that it’s not being published until September next year so it’s a long wait. And yes, Cade did get a bargain. He blackmailed Simone (his ex girlfriend) into becoming his mistress but then fell in love with her all over again. Although it took me longer to write this book than any other I really do miss Simone and Cade, I loved writing their story and I hope that when the book’s out you’ll love reading about them. It’s set in the Whitsundays, so there are long hot days – and even steamier nights!
