Pick of the Crop

Spring really has sprung. You can always tell because the alpacas at Cornerstone Alpaca Stud take their first dip for the year.  Look at these bathing beauties!




Futher proof is this glorious pic from Garden Graphix – the spectacular Magnolia Iolanthe.

And students at Orini Combined School are getting stuck into the garden work, here they are making posts for garden beds.

There was time for a treasure hunt at Great Beginnings Gordonton – check this out –

They also had a fine old time with some bits and pieces.  Here the students are hard at work making a tractor, from a plan that had been drawn earlier.  Great stuff!

    PS Don’t the alpacas look great.
    Hope the students had a good time working from their plan. Hope it worked out for them. Good on ’em.
