just in time for the holidays, we have about 7 inches of snow. my feeding the birds has increased the cardinal population. this year i see at least 3 pairs living in my yard over last year's one pair. this female is brave and has let me within 2 feet of her (with sliding glass door between us.) the color would be better, but the light was low.
despite her new sweater, luna clearly wants to go back in the house.
the harry lauder walking stick still has ornaments, but fewer. the blue stands out a bit more with the snow.
hubs and i went cross country skiing with joe joe; this is a view across the hudson river from the old croton aqueduct trail.
here i am struggling to keep up with my "ears-a-flying" poodle.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Your cardinal is beautiful. We have one that comes early in the morning and sometimes later in the day as well. I've only seen a male once so far this winter...last Friday, during that day's snow storm.
We have about a foot of snow on the ground at the moment. We've had plenty of storms lately!
That's such a great photo of you with Joe Joe :)
