Like most areas of the country, we are having MUCH colder than normal temperatures. Normally we don't have a problem with the water freezing, but today we've gone out on a regular basis to break the ice so the birds can get a drink. They are really packing away the food and it's such a joy to see so many birds coming back and forth. The trees are filled with birds waiting their turns.
No matter how common they are, Cardinals are delightful, especially in winter.
I drew the following names for the "Pay It Forward" blogger project. They are Elora, Pat, and Tara Dharma. I'll send each of them a handmade item within a year. They, in turn will send handmade items to three of their blog readers within a year. It's a nice way to "connect" with others in the blog world.
Stay safe and warm out there!
