Happy Winter Solstice 2015!

Goat on logs

Family collageHappy Winter Solstice! Or, for those of you who celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, Ramadan, Kwanzaa or the Festival of the Radishes, please accept my apologies for my holiday wishes being premature or belated.

Speaking of the holiday season, I thought you might enjoy seeing the card I made for Mom to send to her relatives. The astute reader will recognize some of these images from the blog!

Of course, if Mark and I were going to make our own holiday card, chances are it would revolve around goats. So I'll fill today's post with a little caprine cheer just in case you lack hooved companions of your very own.

Goats eating honeysuckle

Abigail says: "Winter holidays are about feasting. Give me more honeysuckle!"

Circus goat

Artemesia says: "Winter holidays are about fun. If it's more than a foot tall, I want to stand on top of it. You try!"

Goats on leashes

From our farm to yours --- may your year ahead be healthy, happy, and full of inspiration. Don't get pulled in too many different directions and do remember to savor the moment. It's all uphill from here!

And a Happy (fill in holiday of your choice here) to you to!

I could swear that the picture in the upper left hand corner of your wonderful card has the Verrazano-Narrows bridge in the background, (which would mean the gents are standing on Staten Island.)

Love your blog!
