Merry Christmas

(click to enlarge for a sharper view)
The holidays are upon us and time is precious to spend with family and friends and so it is time for me to take a blogging break from this wonderful world of blogland and the beautiful community spirit we find here. I will be visiting and commenting on your blogs for a few more days but this will be my last post until after New Year's. I want to take this time to thank all of you who come by and visit and take the time to leave your lovely comments. No matter your faith or how you celebrate I wish each and every one of you a blessed and joyous celebration!

Love the way so many cardinals are around at this time of the year to provide us with flashes of red.

Returning your holdiday greetings and wishes, Carletta. And looking forward to more virtual "chats" in 2013.

Rose Hascall said...

We have about 6 pr of cardinals at our feeder all day long. They sure can eat a lot of sunflower seeds. But nothing is so beautiful as seeing a flock of cardinals with snow for a background. Really makes them look red.
Have a Merry Christmas.
