Sense of Memory Garden
A young child explores the newly opened Sense of Memory Garden on May 31 at the Eden Project — a popular attraction in Cornwall, England, that features stunning artificial bubble biomes that comprise the world's largest greenhouse.
Rhododendrons, palms, ferns and other plants are nestled beside granite pools in this garden created by landscape architect Thomas Hoblyn, who was inspired by his childhood memories of the moorlands, gardens and coastal areas of Cornwall.
After being exhibited at the 2011 Chelsea Flower Show and winning a Silver-Gilt medal, the Sense of Memory Garden was given a permanent home next to the Eden Project's Mediterranean Biome.
