Winter is a time of promise because there is so little to do — or because you can now and then permit yourself the luxury of thinking so. ~Stanley Crawford, A Garlic Testament: Seasons on a Small New Mexico Farm, 1992

I love Cardinals ....
There are quite a few lovely legends about Cardinals.
Some say it is the spirit of a loved one come to say Hello. One says they came to be when a little brown bird helped a wolf in distress and another says a Cardinal is a sign of good luck!
Whether you believe any of them or not - they are still a such a vibrant bird to sit upon the limb - natures own Christmas Ornament!
