Birthday flowers
When I met up with my youngest daughter on Saturday (24 May 2014), she was clutching this beautiful bouquet of mixed Roses for my birthday (which was the next day). I photographed them yesterday, just in time, as today is so dismal and rainy, and it's so dark in my house.

We spent the morning SE of the city, checking a familiar spot or two, and we were lucky with certain birds, but not with others. A pair of Great Horned Owlets were where we had hoped they would still be, but I'm sure they will be fledging before long. I had hoped to find a White-faced Ibis to show my daughter – various friends had been seeing and photographing them from fairly close. We bumped into friend, Greg, at the birding blind, and I had just told him that I was hoping to find an Ibis. I had barely got the words out when Greg swung round and pointed way up, saying: “You mean, like that one?” I'm sure I would have missed it. So, at least my daughter saw one, even if just a distant bird. Thanks, Greg!

After driving along a few of the backroads, we then went to the Saskatoon Farm for a delicious lunch and to wander round the greenhouses and gift shop. A weekend day is perhaps not the best time to go – or should I say that a weekday would probably be quieter. So many people out enjoying a warm, sunny day. Thanks so much, Rachel, for such a great day spent with you, and thanks for everything else, too.

Happy belated birthday! These flowers are beautiful - a very thoughtful gift from your daughter! Even better that you got to spend a day with her and that you got to show her an Ibis, even if there were probably no photos of it.

Thanks so much for the birthday greetings, Fran! Yes, the best part was being able to spend the day with her!
