Baby Cardinal

A baby cardinal kept me company today. It's hard to do any chores when such a precious little bird is visiting. There is always tomorrow for other things.
You can click on the photo to see him in more detail.

I meant to do my work today...
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree.
And a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me.
And the wind went sighing over the land,
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand...
So what could I do but go?

  4. The baby cardinal is so cute. That poem says it all, except there should be an added line about peoples' blogs calling to me!

  8. Hi Denise, I love the way you made your collage... You framed it well---and it's gorgeous. I love the black space behind --and the small photos spread out. So many mosaics are so busy, I can't see any of the pictures well.... Beautiful job ---and of course, you had a great model... Love those Cardinals!!!
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  13. I saw one this morning, it had to be a baby, it was so small. By the time I got ready to tell Abe, it was gone. sorry I haven't been around for a while, been so busy. Have a great summer.

  16. The mosaic is wonderful to look at, the poem expresses how you must have felt. I always love to watch the hummingbirds in our area.

  21. Denise, that is one of my favorite poems! When I first moved to the Tucson area and started my blog I re-wrote the poem to suit the Sonoran desert! How fun to see you publish it here!
