They are great, Darlene! I love birdwatching out our family room window! (which reminds me I need to fill the feeders!) After 16 years here, we're just now starting to see Cardinals every now and than. All the trees surrounding our neighborhood are really growing, so I guess it's bringing them closer. Thanks for sharing!

Oh, and you didn't leave me your address in your email so I could mail your little goodie to you!

These pictures are great...your husband did such a talented job in capturing the in the camera.

We enjoy watching the birds - and spend a small fortune in feeding them.

How sweet. I love taking pictures of birds. We had a feeder outside our other kitchen window & I've been meaning to put one up here. I'll have to get on that.

Carol said...

Awesome pictures! Cardnials are my favorite, my son called them red jays when he was little.

Smiles,
Carol

Alan did a great job! I love feeding the birds. I have a feeder outside my kitchen window and it's had lots of customers this winter since it's been so much colder than normal here in NC.

When I saw the picture on the top of your blog, I wondered, "Did she take that picture" and I just looked at it for a while, totally enjoying it. Then I see the "bird watching out of my kitchen window" post. How Cool!

Hi Darlene! Oh, yes! These photos are just stunning and your hubby is a great photographer! Your windows are so clean too! That's really a compliment! If I took a picture out of my window you'd think it was raining outside - I just don't do windows! :)
Love your new header too!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Laura said...

I love feeding the birds in the winter too! The cardinals always look so pretty against the drab winter background! Isn't that other birdie a Tufted Titmouse?

Hello Darlene, your hubby's photos are awesome. I do love birds. I have a large collection of birds in my tall windows. I once took photos of each one to share with my blogging friends and then lost them. Sigh, it was a huge photo shoot. HA! Your mosaic is terrific.

Keep you recipes coming. I am really enjoying your meal plans. I may begin to think about dinner more often, following your delicious recipes. That would be a Martha 'good thing.'

Hugs xoxo, Jeanne

Janean said...

Lindsay-ann said...

Your hubby took some great pictures. I always love seeing the different birds you have over there. The little red bird is so cute. All our birds seem to have disappeared. I think they are all hiding away somewhere to keep warm and I don't blame them!

We have to "fight" the squirrels when it comes to the bird feeders..but we are still giving it our all :)
