It felt like spring here today with a high of 47 degrees--not a record, but we still enjoyed it. The winds finally died down later in the afternoon and it was quite lovely outside. Nice enough that picking up about 25 lbs of dog poop didn't even seem like much of a chore!
As I was setting the table for supper, I happened to glance out the dining room window and noticed that my evening contingent of cardinals had arrived. Isn't this fantastic? There are only 10 cardinals in this picture, but a couple on the feeder hanging up above this area and several more at the ground feeder to the left.
