  1. The vibrant red Cardinal in that bare tree surrounded by frozen raindrops says it all….winter will soon be gone. Maureen, Walt Whitman couldn’t have said it better. By now we’re all waiting for warmth. And when the warmth arrives, we’ll complain about the heat! 🤗

    • Yes, I can promise you I will complain about the heat! There are people who say “I can’t complain,” but I always can! We are now deep in that annual wrestling match between winter and spring. The birds wager on spring so I will too.

  2. There is nothing like a gorgeous red Cardinal nor is there anything like winter fading into spring. I’m looking forward to both. 🙂

    • I am sure that you are looking forward to spring more than usual. May it all melt quickly! As for that cardinal, yes, they are not uncommon here but they never cease to amaze me.

  3. This is so much prettier than, “Dammit! It’s cold. When is spring gonna get here?” Walt would have kicked me out of class.

  4. Utterly gorgeous — word & bird. 🙂

  5. Lovely thoughts, Maureen.

    I love seeing cardinals. At least winter’s bare trees give us a better chance to see them.

  6. I hope you have some way of wrapping up warm and as cheery as those red feathers.
