Mama Cardinal

I was watering my Mary garden and discovered a bird's nest in one of the trellises. A sweet little cardinal has made it her home! I think she is sitting on eggs because she rarely leaves. I've made sure that the bird feeders stay full and that the kids leave her alone. We watch her from our kitchen window and I hope she stays here to raise her baby birds!

Anyway, I think it's pretty appropriate that a "cardinal" should make her nest in a "Mary Garden" and I think we should call her "DiNarda" (after Cardinal DiNardo of Galveston-Houston!)...yeah, Kyle rolled his eyes at that too! But the name is staying!

I just hope she decides to leave Greenie alone!
