Happy Birthday MrB

May 15, another trip around the sun for MrB. He's got his bird and bug support going in a big way (possibly to the distress of the next door neighbors who are trying to sell their house - but the prospective buyers may as well know who they are moving in next to. He's potentially a hero this week, because he found a little hatchling birdie on the ground and put it back in a nest. (Hopefully it was the right nest, but we can't be 100% sure of that, and he was trying to help the poor little naked cutester helpless on the ground with its beak open wide waiting for food).

That flower in the picture is my favorite right now. It's the tallest sunflower so far, must be a good 7 feet tall, maybe more, with an absolutely straight stalk and one little perfect flower right at the top.

Prickly pear cactus is blooming right now too (just as the red poppies have gone seedy and crispy, and the thick white jasmine has peaked and will soon be less fragrant), so we have a lot of yellow.

You don't want to sniff these blooms though, there's at least one bug per blossom.

To celebrate his birthday we are planning on going out to the Nutty Brown Cafe to see Del Castillo - postpone the employment worries until Monday...
