In a south facing window, herbs spend the winter inside.
On one of our recent snow days, I noticed something red right outside my window. A sleeping male cardinal with his feathers puffed against the cold.
He is resting on a crape myrtle branch that sits among mahonia bushes. I guess our house and the evergreen leaves offered some protection.
I hope you are having a warm and colorful winter! What are you seeing right outside your windows?
