'Crowd of golden daffodils' created at the National Botanic Garden of Wales
More than a hundred foster children and their carers have created their own 'crowd of golden daffodils' at the National Botanic Garden of Wales, Llanarthne.
A daffodil bulb has been planted for each of the foster children in the county. There are more than 200.
The Botanic Gardens designated a special grassy area on one of their main walks in which a daffodil bulb was planted. The children joined with staff digging, planting and stamping down the clods of grass over their buried treasure of bulbs. They can’t wait to see the results of their labours in the spring.
Carmarthenshire County Council's executive board member for education children’s services Cllr Gareth Jones, enjoying the Botanical fun day with his wife Meinir, said: “It’s encouraging to see one of the county’s major year round attractions, the Botanical Gardens, supporting our hard working fostering team and see everyone having so much fun. It was a really valuable exercise to boost the recruitment of foster carers in the county.”
