A Norwich care home's garden turned into a farmyard for an afternoon with the arrival of two four-legged visitors.
Bumble and Bee the alpacas from Bumblebarn, at Beeston Regis, paid a visit to Woodside House in Norwich on Thursday.
Residents enjoyed petting the two-year-old alpacas and feeding them treats, including apples and carrots.
One resident said: "As a child I used to love going to the farm and seeing the animals.
"Today was very enjoyable and it was wonderful that the animals were free to roam amongst us.”
