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.

This is WEEE-Man. WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, waste which usually ends up in landfill but from which this seven-foot tall piece of artwork was constructed. His teeth are computer mice, his eyes the doors of front-loader washers. Within the structure there are kitchen appliances such as toasters and microwave ovens; large appliances like washers and tumble dryers; plenty of computer-related equipment and even an electric lawn-mower.
The WEEE-Man currently lives at the Eden Project in Cornwall, UK. When we visited last month, I have to say I was totally fascinated by this installation. The second picture above gives a better idea of the WEEE-Man’s size and, when you’ve taken that in, here’s the thought I’d like to leave you with this Earth Day: the amount of material used to construct this structure is equivalent to the amount that an average individual will throw away during his or her lifetime. Shocking, eh?
