New life

Red Cardinal chicks
Red Cardinal chicks

Life is such a roller-coaster, full of incredible highs and lows and rushing around at 100mph that sometimes it’s nice to STOPĀ and just wonder at the miracle of nature.

As an aside – Red Cardinals must be the daftest birds around though – why would they build a nest 2 feet off the ground when there’s a gigantic puppy running around the garden. We had to erect a temporary fence round the tree to keep the dog away from the chicks. There’s plenty of trees round the side of the house where the dog can’t get to, but no, they nest right in the dog’s ‘play’ area!
