|Looking through the glass doors that open onto the garden, at pottery.|
I know that cardinals are more plentiful in towns and villages so I hoped/wished that I would see them when I went to my pottery class yesterday afternoon. I took my camera with the idea that I might get at least one interesting photograph since my pottery teacher loves birds as much as I do. She has feeders set up in her back yard on a wonderful arbour that grows grapes in the spring, as well as in other places close to the arbour.
The first thing I noticed was one of my favourite birds trying to get a peanut out of the feeder - the upside down abilities of nuthatches white and red breasted - is to my mind one of the most endearing. Their clown-like activities up and down trees, feeders the sides of houses and barns is definitely smile and happy-making.
And then we saw one bright red splash - crimson - glowing in the pale sunlight. A male cardinal came close to the glass doors.
It suddenly seemed as if this bird sent out the call - "Seeds here - lots of seeds here." One more male cardinal and a female arrived.

How many can you see? Wasn't this a treat? And boy oh boy did I ever get what I wished for. Makes me feel very blessed. May you be blessed with receiving something you wish for today.
