A Sure Sign of a FABULOUS New Year!

Miss Ginger has always found cardinals to be her favorite thing about the New Year. Here in Texas, almost on cue, they begin to show up in our barren gardens and browned out lawns, adding a bright splash of color to an otherwise dreary period for us. Late December and early January is our worst time of year, with a damp, invasive cold that soaks into one's pores! Cardinals are natures bright reminder that better times and brighter days are on their way!


Miss Ginger is also amazed by the way they are always paired! While the drab female hunts, and pecks, and forages for seed, the handsome husband prisses and preens and proves him dominance.



Miss G looked out the window this morning and saw her first pair of cardinals for the new year:













Oops! Wrong pic! Here's the one Miss Ginger intended!

"May the cardinals of happiness grope their way into your New Year!"

Much Love,

Miss Ginger, Shelby, Jackson, and Nog!

Happy New Year to you.

Aren't they lovely? They stick around here all year, but they are so striking against the snow. It can get awfully drab around here in the winter, and seeing those bright flashes of crimson is definitely a boost.

Glad you had a great Christmas, and I wish you wonderful--and fabulous!--things in the coming year! XOXO

Miss G, I miss cardinals. I love their colorful parings. They are one of the few birds I miss from my southern upbringing. They are in NH, but not nearly in the numbers they are down south. I know you will have a happy new year, because you will make it happen!
