"I know a bank whereon the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses, and with eglantine:
There sleeps Titania some time of the night,
Lull’d in these flowers with dances and delight
-A Midsummer-Night’s Dream (2.1.260-5)
Which the kids are out enjoying... well, trying to recreate Snowflake Bentley's experiments :)
Action shot of the cardinal trying to stay on the feeder!
There is not really much snow, and the weatherman said that it should turn to rain later... but when the kids are eager to catch a snowflake, what do you do?
I love shots of cardinals sitting in the snow :)
Then there are snow angels... my 3 year old (almost 4) has never had the chance to make one!
Two male cardinals at the feeder.
The birds have been coming to the feeder in droves. We have hopes of seeing more now the kids are in, but I have been listening to birding friends with LOTS of birds, and soon I hope to improve our setup! You can click on my pictures to see them a little larger ;)
