Far And Away


To all my friends from far away, I wish you the happiest holidays and a great New Year.



And from whence they came.  These were country cardinals. They don't visit the city much.

  2. When it snows they almost look like Christmas decorations. The males here are just giving up their territorial behaviors until spring. Merry Christmas!

    1. I will be so glad when this Rooster Year is over. The Chinese knew what they were talking about with the zodiac. Yes, birds still make me glad.

  11. So glad to see you here - and for the comment. I was concerned.
    We have so many cardinals too - I took a few pix this morning when they came to the now leafless fig tree - nice because I can see them more clearly.
    Best wishes dear - hoping 2018 will be much better year and that you will be back here often.
    Love, Mary -
