Fathers Day at the Red Cardinal nest began with a lovely
International Skype call from one of our fledglings.
Shortly after, our boy Local Lad arrived bearing a bag of fresh produce,
and made this Big Breakfast for his Dad (and Mum).
Every item was just perfect, and delicious.
I don't know where he acquired such impressive culinary talent;
(certainly not from this bird, who has Difficulty Coping with Cooking,
and prefers to spend her time designing the table decor
or playing with the flowers!)

Who doesn't love The Flowers that Bloom in the Spring (Ta Dum)?
This pink rose bush has literally dozens of buds - Exciting!

Last week's rain gave my Freezias the hint, and buds have popped out.
Also exciting ...

Happy Fathers' Day to all Blog Dads!!


  1. Patricia, lovely photos!! I'd love a bite of the delicious breakfast and wish we, in America, were also heading into Spring, instead of saying goodbye to summer. Enjoy the sunshine.

  2. I agree, arranging a table and playing with flowers is fun. How nice of your son to cook his Dad (& Mum) a delicious breaky.
