Bloom 2013 (3)

The kiddies playground early on in the day!

The Wizard of Oz, Sanctuary garden.Lots of bigger kids queueing up to go through!







Didn't it make you smile?!
Lots of interest  for the kids everywhere.
vegetables were in flower and mini gardens as well as the more formal veg gardens, just proving you don't need an acre of ground to grow a few veg for yourself and the family.
Lots of activities and workshops for children to keep them occupied.
I would have loved to do this myself!
just some more of the various activities in Bloom especially for the kids who were admitted FREE with a paying adult so it was a very friendly family orientated day out where they learned that our veg  does not just appear on supermarket shelves!
 There were FREE refill water stations around the grounds
 getting up close and personal with hens...
 sleepy sheep....
and even more comatose pigs!
 I will finish with that as I could be doing posts for weeks on all aspects of Bloom, make a note for next years Bloom in your diary Thurs 29th May to Mon 2nd June and check out all  the details of this years on their website www.bordbia.ie which is our Irish Good Food Board, you can also download the Chef's recipes which I mentioned earlier.
