Spring at Eden, the woods and fabric.

Easter weekend saw us visiting the Eden Project to see if the tulips & other Spring flowers were in bloom as you can see from the photo overload we weren't disappointed!

We also went on an Easter egg trail through Cardinham woods. I haven't been there for a few years, which is often the case when someplace is on your doorstep! It's definately worth a visit if you're in the area, with 4 or 5 different walks through the woods, a cafe, barbecue area and small playground.

I also managed to acquire some barkcloth and brushed cotton fabrics from my MIL, all from the 60's/70's.
The brushed cotton is so pretty, I'll have to take a close up. It has tiny pink roses & a small blue daisy type flower. She was given it (about 4yds) in 1964 to make cot sheets with but never got round to it!

I nipped to the car boot as well to get some more strawberry plants and found this gorgeous jug and the canister. A few more bits too but more on that later!
I hope everyone has had a good Easter the weather here has been glorious just like Summer so I've managed to sort out the garden, planted about 30 different types of seed and the rest of the time has been spent on the allotment and now I'm going to update my allotment blog. Have a lovely weekend I have another craft/produce market on Saturday & L has a party to go to in the afternoon on Sunday we shall probably, weather permitting be on the allotment.

I love Eden but have only ever been there during the summer - can imagine how gorgeous all the spring flowers look.

Have also been to Cardinham Woods - we meet up with friends when we were last on holiday in Cornwall. Despite having 3 scouts in the group we got hopelessly lost! Did find the tea-rooms eventually - well worth waiting for :)

We went to Cardinham Woods on holiday one year - took our bikes and followed one of the trails. Bit hard going for our Suffolk legs used to flatter land! The cream tea after was worth it though.

What a lovely time to go to Eden. The woods look like a fabulous place to visit as well.

Thank you so much for sharing these photographs! I am off to Cornwall in 8 weeks & very much looking forwards to Eden..... we went when it first opened and it was very bare, it certainly looks different now!
It looks like you had an amazing time!
