  2. Oh Becky, Your cardinals and your blooms are just breathtaking. Here in Phoenix I have lost pretty much every one of my flowers. The hibiscus seem to be thriving, but the heat has burnt just about everything else that I had. It has been so hot. I love seeing all the green that you have in your yard, and love the birdbath. How beautiful. Stop by and say hi. Country hugs, Sherry

  3. Looks like the birds and the blooms are all doing well! I need to start putting the good stuff (safflower and sunflower seeds) back out, but I hate that the squirrels just have a feast on it. There's got to be a better way, so that they can't get at it so easily. I miss seeing the cardinals. I can hear them around dusk, and I think they're angry with me! I think I'll put it out today, because looking at your beautiful pictures makes me want to see them again. Right now!

  7. Hi Becky! Love the flowers...so pretty! I have a pair of cardinals, too, but can never get a photo. As soon as they see me, they start to fuss and then take off! I'm spoiling their feeder time! lol Happy week!...Debbie

  30. Such pretty pictures! What a day brightener :). The vibrant colors just make me smile ~ thank you for sharing the beauty. (I hope someday I have the thrill of seeing cardinals in person... they don't live where I do.)

    Very nice job!
