SPRING HAS SPRUNG!  We have proof.  Here’s a photo of Gordonton’s Kim Gardiner with a new friend. Mother Marie says her daughter loves her lambs.

As does this mother.  Thanks for the pics Marie!

And what is this?  Could it be a Moanasaurus, a marine dinosaur that lived in the seas around 70 million years ago?  Absolutely.  This stunning recycled steel sculpture by Marti Wong has just been installed in The Mandarin Tree’s garden.

Claudia Aalderink says these animals fed on prehistoric turtles and squid and grew to 12 metres.  “This is a small ‘specimen’ – will the squid get eaten, or will it get away? Pop in to take a closer look!”  We will.

 

Speaking of prehistoric creatures, Great Beginnings Gordonton have been making the most of the great weather and doing some outside sketching.  Love this.

Also making the most of the great weather are these two members from Orini Combined School.

The rows of daffodils looked stunning at Clandon Daffodils the other day –

And in nearby Rototuna, Alison Campbell and her plucky poodle Ben enjoyed the evening glow as they went for their constitutional.
