Mothers day

Had a warm and sunny Mothers day with my children spoiling me more than they ought to. In the afternoon Gerald and I went on a birding picnic and watched shorebirds and geese at Murray Marsh while munching on a mouth watering lunch of homemade potato buns and meatloaf all to a chorus of frogs and varied birdsong. 
The trumpeter swans were feeding on Devils Lake, I took the photo from the duck blind at Immarie Park.

Saturday I found my first blossoms of the season, these were blooming in an abandoned garden beside a used book store, I was so happy to see them I had to capture them to share. There is nothing better than finding a flower where you least expect it, its like a smile that brightens the day.
