What a fantastic two days I had at the Caerphilly Garden Centre spring festival event.
Lots of people came to visit the garden centre, and while the adults were checking out all of the special offers, I was entertaining the young ones. Children had the choice of a balloon animal, face painting, glitter tattoo or all three! We were also lucky to have my good friends at Red Dragon Magic performing a range of tricks which proved very popular with both the old and young.
In-between all the fun there were supplier representatives on hand giving great advice on the new spring range of plants and shrubs, and also plenty of staff, with their wealth of knowledge, helping anyone who needed it.
I also had a visit from my new best friend, Lola, who came to say hello, and got a glitter tattoo and balloon. You can read all about this lovely little girl here.
The onsite restaurant at the centre is fantastic – providing lovely hot food and drinks, and was very busy around lunch time (on both days) so obviously I am not the only one who loves their food!
While exploring: I got bitten by a venus fly trap, rode a donkey, made some new friends, and had a big kiss on my big red nose from a lovely young lad by the name of Luke. (Kept an eye out for Darth Vader – thankfully he did not turn up). You can see some of my adventures below.
All in all it was a very enjoyable few days and can’t wait to go back. I will of course post when I am back at Caerphilly Garden Centre, and hope to see you all there.
Bye for now!
Mr. T. Ricks.
