The cardinals have been visiting often since our last snowstorm.
There's no missing them, especially against the minimalism of winter's landscapes.
I spotted this guy in an instant from inside the house, so I ran to get my camera.
Thankfully he was still there when I got back.
These photos were taken the day our major snowstorm arrived.

A while later Mr. Cardinal ventured closer, perching on top of the plant hanger attached to the deck. From there, it was a hop, skip, and a jump to the sunflower seed in the screen feeder!
I think of my mom whenever I see cardinals as they were her favorite birds.
I hope you enjoyed this little bit of red. It seemed fitting to share it today!
Happy Valentine's Day!
I'm linking up to Cindy's Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home this week.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
