All About Tulips At Eden Project



For Photo Friday today, I’m sharing my totally self-indulgent flower photos. Much easier to capture in the right pose than children will ever be :) These photos were taken at the Mediterranean Biome of the Eden Project in Cornwall, UK in March. By now, I hope you’ve been able to enjoy tulips blooming in your own garden and it’s been a colorful show.



There, don’t you feel so much better imagining the feeling of standing in a field of tulips surrounded by a riot of color and scent? Happy Friday!

When I saw Debbie’s photo today, I just had to share the last two books I bought for my boys while traveling – also in Italy. They were a find in a little Italian bookstore which only had about one shelf of English books. Unfortunately these books are not available on Amazon.com, but if you’re in Italy it’s definitely worthwhile to check a bookstore or two for copies. The illustrations are hilarious and though the material is obviously weighty, my kids were just enthralled.

Head on over to DeliciousBaby for more fun Friday travel photos.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    What gorgeous flower fields. I remember I was in Holland ages ago and we snuck into a tulip field in Haarlem. It was the most glorious day for me!

    I spent this morning in the Volunteer Park Conservatory with my daughter’s preschool class, so this was a nice continuation of that theme for me! Thanks for sharing.

    Tulips are my fave – thanks for sharing.

    My boys are in bed or I’d be rummaging around in their room for the cool books we got them in Paris last summer. One shows a number of different Paris monuments and is tres cool.

    How beautiful! I love tulips but have missed them everywhere we go. I am either too late or too early for the bloom! Someday I will see the fields though!

    I too buy books everywhere I go with my kids. It is always one of their prized possessions!

    Thanks for the tulips photos…especially appreciated this weekend as our trip out to Holland, MI to take tulip pix got rained out. It doesn’t look like we’ll get back out there for the tulip fest next week, either :(
    We ended up swapping out for a quick trip tomorrow down to Indiana to take pix in a really cool car museum, though.

    Beautiful pictures, especially on a glum day! The eden project is a lovely place for children to explore nature and babies love the bright colours and shapes of the plants too.
