Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel?...this that is glorious in his apparel, traveling in the greatness of his strength...Isaiah 63 1-2

I decided to combine two pictures that I shot yesterday of the male cardinal on the feeder and the Geranium in the background blooming in our house that match each other in the same red color.

The male cardinal
Along with the Geranium
Dress in red apparel
To bring a spring song.
The bird needs to be strong
For the brain in his cranium
To live thru' winters peril,
While flowers may bloom
In the shelter of a room..
Poetry by me AJP

    An excellent shot of this very striking bird, I so wish they resided here. I bet he`s longing to see flowers again, too. I love the complementary colours here, they`re so bright and beautiful!
