Here’s the regular pictorial round-up of all things awesome in our patch.  How about this for a real pick of the crop?  Ian Riddell is delighted with the early flowering blooms at Clandon Daffodils.   (Their shop opens Monday July 2!)

The sunrise was gorgeous at Cornerstone Alpaca Stud last week.  (But where are all the alpacas?!)

Orini Combined School’s garden group have been picking, digging and placing soil onto the gardens. They have also weeded and pruned some of the trees!  Way cool.

Continuing with the gardening theme, how about this shot from Wairere Nursery?  They haven’t let the rain put them off potting up roses and trees.  Looking good, guys.
