Look to the Cardinals This Year

It is widely believed that the cardinal is a spiritual messenger. But did you know that a cardinal’s bright color is associated with energy and vitality in many traditions?

Cardinals are seen twelve months of the year and mate for life, so a cardinal sighting is associated with stability, survival, and security in Native American lore.

A final reason to look for cardinals: their various calls brightens the spirit, as if cheering us on through the day.

This photo blog features the seasonal changes in nature observed in my own backyard and a variety of local environments. The Wachusett Meadow Audubon Sanctuary in Princeton, MA is often highlighted as a model for the positive effects a small nature preserve can have on the larger environment and the local community. Local sites of historical, cultural and recreational interest are spotlighted as well. All photographs were taken by me. Thank you so much for visiting.
