Have I ever mentioned how soft hearted my husband is? A few weeks ago I started telling him how a couple of cardinals had built a nest in the climbing rose on our front porch. He didn't pay much attention, until I told him we had a baby bird. When I pointed out the nest and baby he started watching, checking every couple of hours on the progress of the wee one. Well he came in yesterday pleased as punch that Mama and Daddy had taught the little one to fly, and he witnessed the first flight! So this coconut cupcake is in honor of our cardinal family, they have left the nest, but can still be heard chirping in our woods!
