The Eden Project has transformed a claypit into a vast garden featuring two biomes in which climates are reproduced to allow other plants to be grown. The biomes dominate the landscape if for no other reason than that they are white which shows up against the green background. The overall landscapes around the site are amazing. Luckily my visit was on a day of mixed weather, with rain, sunshine (and a rainbow!) and clouds casting interesting shadows.
