Eden project: flowers in winter

 A world garden located in Cornwall. Eden Project has around 1 million plants of 4,000 species and cultivars. A real Eden of colours, smells, surprises, but also learning and fun. The experience this attraction offers is truly unique, you will feel immerse in other latitudes and remember how wonderful nature can be. I went in winter and I share with you some of the beautiful flowers I found there.

There are two Biomes. One with plants from the Rainforest and the second with the Mediterranean area

The weather in the Rainforest Biome feels like you were in the tropic, there is only one thing missing: mosquitos! And you don’t miss them at all.
