|"Cardinal Happiness," 5 by 7 greeting card|
We are blessed with many cardinals, male and female, in this area, either coming to the bird feeders, or in the woods of Hafer Park.
Both the sight and sound of them are greetings, lifting your spirits, taking your thoughts off anything else for moments, making time stand still, making the world go away. Their song is sensual, easily imitated late in the evening when one is calling for its mate, and you can carry on a conversation, almost...connecting you with the miracle of creation.
Cardinals make me happy, reminding me of the beauty of nature and of all life. Painting cardinals on a greeting card doubles the happiness.
