My birthday is on the first of a month. My three logical friends Lettice, Daisy and Bertha wanted to know which month. So I whispered to Lettice the number of letters in the spelling of the month, I whispered to Daisy the number of days in the month, and I whispered to Bertha the day of the week of my birthday this year. I explained to all three what I had done and then I asked them in turn whether they were able to work out the month yet. Their replies were:

Lettice, no; Daisy, no; Bertha, no.

Lettice, no; Daisy, no; Bertha, yes.

What is my birthday month?
