Tweet of the Day: Cardinal….this one is for you Jacquie …Jim's favourite bird. We don't have them over here in the UK…but if we did it would be my favourite too. Wonderful colours red and black..
I remember the first time I saw one..it was at a golf club breakfast in Hilton Head Island with one of my favourite illustrators Jo D'Mers and painter John Stobard….after tucking into a king sized breakfast I suddenly look up as something had caught my eye…and there on the veranda was this wonderful red and black bird with the sun light spotlighting him like he was "on stage". It was the first time I had seen one…great memory..
