July and August have been difficult months at Kahikatea Gardens.
Sadly our Head Assistant Gardener, Beijing passed away on 1 July. He had not been well for a few days and after visiting the vet, we knew we only had a short time left to enjoy his company.
Beijing went quietly in his sleep. He loved going for rides in the wheelbarrow and so he was taken for his final ride to his resting place in the garden.
In mid July Neil injured his back so he was out of action for a few weeks. The most comfortable position was lying on the floor where he was often joined by one or more of the animals. Neil has made a good recovery but is on "light duties"
The good news is that our sheep have given birth to some beautiful lambs. We have a range of white, black and colours in-between!
