What a way to start the day

This morning I saw one of the most ordinary, yet most lovely, sights. Picture a meadow, surrounded by woods, with a few trees and shrubs scattered around the meadow. Some of the trees are cedars, so are green, but some are deciduous and still bare. The sun is up, but has not reached all of the meadow yet, and is only hitting the tops of some of the trees. In one of those trees, way at the top, is a cardinal singing his heart out. He is gleaming bright red in the sunshine and welcoming the day as only a cardinal can. Oh happy day!

Later on that same walk I saw a cardinal and a robin "discussing" who would get the top of another tree for, presumably, the same purpose.


  1. I would swear this little gang of cardinals has been following me lately and I love them so.


Thanks for being patient - I don't moderate comments every day, but I will get to it!
