Right Outside my Window


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?

  3. Isn't it wonderful how just one simple bird can be so interesting and beautiful? I cannot deny that I am looking forward to the spring and the finches turning yellow!
