Pick of the crop

Here be our regular pictorial rural round-up.  It was a bonny morning at Cornerstone Alpaca Stud – look at all the alpacas grazing away!  (‘Red sky in morning…’ – rain must have followed!)

And there was good news at Whitikahu School when caretaker extraordinaire Digger won $10,000 worth of Stihl Shop tools for being… exceptional at what he does.

And how about at this absolute pick of the crop from Clandon Daffodils.  These beauties were off to the flower auction.  A bunch of sunshine, grown in Gordonton!
