Safe to brave the weather

Just when it looked safe to brave the great out doors.
Brolly up and planning a nice drink in the sun shine.
Down came the rain.
I do hope that the sun will shine, for longer than one day at a time.
By all accounts not this Bank holiday though.
Happy Bank Holiday to all friends and visitors.

Tree Peony

I have shown this plant on previous years, when it bloomed.
This year I place a rule above it, to show the size of the flowers.
They are eight inches across.
Just click on the picture for a close up.
I have several of these trees in the garden. Although it take a few years for the plants to establish themselves enough to flower. I wait for the others to give so much pleasure.

Eden Project Cornwall

These are the Biospheres at Eden.
It takes many hours to get to see everything there.

This Junk Robot is just outside the spheres. He is made from recycled items discarded every day . Just click on the picture to see a close up.

The Mediterranean sphere was next amongst the grape vines, although you will find it very warm inside.

The last picture is of a spirit with some what a prickly nature.

We enjoyed a week in Devon and trips to Cornwall and Bodmin.
A lovely holiday.
