See the pictures here first.

 

18/08/04 A bunch of lavender makes a popular freebie to take home, also available in the shop

 

18/08/04 The big build 2

 

18/08/04 Work on the Education Resource Centre is progressing with the top of the lift shaft being dropped into place.  It's well worth putting on the essential safety helmet and yellow jacket and crossing the bridge to get a better look.

 

18/08/04 Tobacco drying in the WTB and a bridge view in the HTB.

 

18/08/04 Lilies 'Amaryllidaceae' and the entrance view in the Warm Temperate Biome.

 

18/08/04 A glimpse of the HTB through the flower gardens.

 

18/08/04 The easiest way to garden is to watch from the balcony,

 

18/08/04 Jill's vegetable garden, harvesting and cutting back. Lots of green sappy growth as there's been plenty of rain, Jill hoping for some warm sunshine to ripen things off.

   

18/08/04 Harvesting courgettes in Eden's prolific vegetable garden.

 

18/08/04 Lots of visitors, but short queues due to efficient ticketing staff.  The hydrangea pathway leads down to the Biomes.

 

13/08/04 Magic was in the 'AIR' again at the Eden Sessions,  another sell out concert.

 

13/08/04 The biomes pulsated with colour to every beat of the music.

I can remember sound to light systems from my DJ days, but this one blow the crowds away.

 

06/08/04 Whether it was the bubbles or the beer tent that attracted you at the evening performance, there was plenty to explore before the music commenced.

 

06/08/04 The C.B.I. were there, the Men and Women in Black! 'Comfort Investigating Bureau'

If you could  weather a blizzard of bubbles whilst sitting in a huge wicker basket, this was just the thing for you.  Coffee and bubbles appeared to be popular with all during the evening.

 

06/08/04 In the HTB a giant butterfly hung aloft and atmospheric music filled the air.

 

06/08/04 Jackie Abey and Jill Smallcombe around a traditional mud oven, in which they produced delicious fresh bread throughout the evening. Just one of the interesting exhibits to

view on this glorious night.

 

06/08/04 It's a smoky affair, but the bread sure tasted good.

 

06/08/04 A close up of Eden's Dave Meneer ( I struggled to get close to the stage to get his picture)  The first band on stage were Six by Seven, this is the third time they have appeared at Eden.

 

06/08/04 The start of the evening, many visitors arrived later for the main event.

 

06/08/04 View from the top car park. Primal Scream on stage in a blaze of flashing lights, thumbing bass, there was no misery where their name came from. The crowd mesmerised or maybe hypnotised by the ultra high speed strobe lighting. Something tells me I might just be showing my age a bit here, as I made my way to the back for more comfortable viewing.

 

06/08/04 Biome view on the night.  A late night view of the street, Tim can just be seen with friends leaving at the end of the performance. 

   

06/08/04 Pasty Pod now fully open. Stage being set for tonight's performance from Six by Seven and Primal Scream. 

 

30/07/04  Work to date on the ERC, many metres of pipe work are buried underground and are therefore called "groundtubes", as air is sucked through them it is cooled slightly by the lower ground temperature, hence saving energy that would otherwise be provided by refrigeration plant.  Thank you to Martin Jones from SKM Anthony Hunts - Structural/Civil Engineers for the ERC. for this information.

 

30/07/04  Dublin hard at work as usual, still beaming his trademark smile.
A view of Eden's "Green and pleasant land"

16/07/04 Eden's David introduced Brian Wilson and Smile (Brian's group), who were on stage from 8.15 until 10.45 with a short intermission.  The mists came down and umbrella's went up, but the evening ended with a star covered sky and happy Beach Boy sounds.

 

16/07/04 The cliffs of Eden tell of the message, the first of the 2004 Sessions has started.
