Zola’s own travelling monster, Horatio Bobbles, went with her to the RHS Malvern Spring Festival. They especially wanted to see the amazing knitted Work of Heart garden, and were lucky enough to meet the garden’s creator, the lovely Clare Young. Mr. Bobbles was happy to see other lots of other knitted and crocheted creatures out in the wild!
Mr. Bobbles loved Chica
