Thanks Kalanna! I love being able to watch to see what stops by the feeders out back. Yes, lots of Cardinals, both male & female, and they bring such joy when they visit!

I thought of you yesterday on my way to work. I was walking in the middle of yet another blizzard. The snow was coming down pretty heavily and it looked beautiful. As I turned the corner, I heard a "chirping" sound, looked up to see Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal flying from one branch to the next.

No camera with me, and not quick enough anyway, but I thought of my dear friend, Jo, the bird whisperer, who captures such lovely pics.

I started to compose a poem in my head as I walked to work, but poetry isn't my thing.
I was trying to think of something to say about the cardinal the bird and link it the season of Lent. I may still "write" something and share it with you even if it is bad poetry.

Enjoy the new snow! I don't even have to shovel much because the wind has created big snow drifts and blew it off the sidewalk.

Brenda, you are just so sweet! Sounds like a pretty sight you were Blessed to see! Write your poem, I'd love to read it!

We've been nailed here by this storm, more than a foot & counting! We're pooped!
