Wherein the Bug Decides That She Needs New Glasses

I was doing dishes on Saturday & enjoying watching the birds under the feeder. Then I noticed that there was a cardinal sitting under the pine trees. It wasn't moving, which worried me.

So after I finished doing the dishes I trundled out the back door to see what was wrong with this poor bird.

What was wrong is that it wasn't a bird at all.

It was a red ribbon tied around a tree branch. Yes, I spent several minutes feeling concerned about a piece of red fabric.


  1. You have pretty good eyesight!

  2. Yeah, I echo Rita's comment. I'm impressed you even noticed that ribbon!

  3. For me it was a deflated birthday balloon.

  4. I couldn't even see it until the final picture. But for future use: I don't think cardinals sit still very long.

  5. Remember, I mistook a CPR doll for a real person a few years back.

  6. Hahaha at your post.

    Hahahahahaha at Beach Bum's comment.

  7. Don't feel bad. Red's a color that screams "Notice me!"


Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!
