Sweetfern, Comptonia peregrina, is neither sweet nor a fern, but is one of my favorite plants. It looks like something the dinosaurs would have walked through, and smells like all the warmest, spiciest, most magical aromas of imagination.
What a beautiful sunny day. Too cute that the goats just needed a touch from mama. And that one that smiling, priceless.
Love those goatie pics! Really fantastic with the snow.
What a winter wonderland! It looks as if the strength of your roofs are being tested. We had a huge winter about a decade ago, with one 7' snow storm. Buildings were collapsing everywhere.I love seeing the goats all lines up in their little pathway. They are so cute!
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr - I love the goat road! Hey, Quinn...throw your name in on the yarn giveaway - you never know. I have a whole bunch of entries from No-Reply bloggers (even though I warned them) that I have no way of getting ahold of if they win, so very few REAL entries. Happy Thursday - XOXO
Picture book beauty :)
Love it!! The empty track. The track full of woolly goats. Is there any other animal that is so sweet and expressive (in the farmyard set). I can just imagine their warm breath smelling faintly of oats and hay, and their little furry lips nuzzling for a treat. Great photos of your wintry woods :)Wendy
Lovely shots. I particularly like the one of all the goats lined up between the fences. Looks a tad cold over there... Thanks so much for visiting A Bit About Britain and leaving a comment. 'Speak' again, no doubt! Have a great weekend.
Thanks, Mike! It is a bit chilly ;)
PS Drop me an email if you need any tips for your trip.
Wonderful photos, Fun to lookLaura
Thanks, Laura - and I like your painting of the Angora goat :)
Beautiful shots. Lots of snow here too. I hope you don't get any more snow, since I know it makes it hard to do all of the farm work. Loved the pictures of the goats. The last one if my favorite. :)~Jess
Hi Jess - thanks! The last picture is Tsuga, one of my does. I'm hoping she will have her first kid/s this Spring. Stay tuned!
Shivering lolI do so like goats!Yours could do with skis!!
I love the way the goats move along their little channel, in an orderly way (or were they just behaving nicely for the camera?).I see a more recent post it is snowing again. It is just misty here, which is very pretty, but I wouldn't mind a little snow just for Miss Roobarb to play in. I hope you are managing to keep warm.
