I love Christmas: decorating the house, visiting with good friends, entertaining, and planning the Boxing Day dinner for our family. This year, as an extra bit of fun, I dressed up our goats and made the picture into a Christmas card. Some were surprised that I did it, but all agreed that Doodles is the cutest baby goat ever. So I'm sharing the picture with all of you, as I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from everyone at Astolat Farm, including Doodles and Billy Goat.
Here is a little tour of the house in its holiday finery:
|The main tree is in the den|
|As always, we chose a Frasier fir from Old Homestead Tree Farm|
|A smaller (artificial) tree in the Garden Room is new this year|
|I brought the angel topper with me from England 40 years ago|
|A collection of school houses on the TV cabinet|
|Jon made a parade of English soldiers through the schoolhouse village|
|He arranged my large collection of santas on the hutch|
|Love the seasonal flowers on my teacup collection|
|Winter rose poinsettia|
|I'm so happy that many people still send cards|
Wishing you a blessed holiday season and happy gardening in 2019!
|Christmas crackers are part of our tradition|
