  1. Another cardinal?! I love the roadrunners. Not a beautiful bird, but so much character. And I can't help thinking about the roadrunner and Wile E Coyote!

    Yes, this time I go for the roadrunner, because
    of the beautiful and colourful landscape that
    comes with it :))
    Have a beautiful day, John!

  3. I'm fond of the roadrunner, too. But that bluebird and rose are so beautiful! That sure is a fine looking stamp for New York, too. :-)

  11. John,

    Your postcards are so precious and it takes me back to simpler times when illustrations were simple, but beautiful and non-offensive. Thanks so much for sharing these.

  14. Hi John. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I really like the roadrunner. They are here in Oklahoma and at least once a week I will see one visiting us on our front porch. Very cool bird!
