My blog has moved! We finally decided on a property name and alpaca stud name Adagio and Adagio Alpacas respectively so I've decided to launch a new blog that reflects this change! Hope you like it! Check it out at Adagio Alpacas

Ducks and roses!

Something I love about spring are our roses. They had a good pruning this year and loved it so most of our rose plants are covered in buds ready to burst into colour! I particularly love this plant, they are small and baby pink but oh so cute!
We have also had a flock of ducks wandering up and down our lawn all day! They can be seen, just, in the background of this photo... :)

Veggies are going to be awesome this year!

We have managed to get the veggie patch organised in time this year! My husband has been busy working hard on the veggie patch. He has turned it over and even has lots planted! Carrots, leeks, tomatoes, spinach and zucchini are all in and thriving! Potato plants are popping up everywhere! The drip watering system is working well. This year's project has been to set up a frame and bird netting and we are rather pleased with the result!

I love the crazy seasons we have here! After it warming up enough this week for shorts and t-shirts, today we have snow! Ground is too wet and warm for it to settle but the snow flakes were large enough to be seen in a photo!

Alpaca treats

The alpacas all came running when we put out some alpaca mix as a treat this afternoon. There was quite some tempers flaring over who got to eat first!

Adagio Alpacas

Well, its been a long time since I last did a blog post! It has been crazy around here, I've returned to work part time, my baby who has just turned one (more a boy now than a baby!) has been seriously ill and constantly sick (ear infections, mastoiditis...) since starting daycare :( and we have been relearning how to balance life!

We have finally chosen a stud name for our alpacas! We are adagio alpacas.

In the meantime, another cria was born to Gedalyn and we named Lass's cria. Just two cria for us this year. They are so cute! The below photo has from left to right, Gedalyn, her new cria who we have called Silhouette, Lass's cria who we have called Tuxedo Junction (Tux for short) and Lass.

Tux received his name for dual reasons, he looks like he is wearing a Tuxedo and we love the song Tuxedo Junction as played by Glenn Miller. Silhouette is so pretty and petite that it took us quite some time to find a name that suited her. Tux is so pleased with his new friend, they can be seen playing and chasing each other around the paddock!

First cria of 2012!

Our first cria of 2012! Born to lass (brown alpaca in photo) so new that it hasn't got a name yet!
