Last week I celebrated a big birthday and we went to the Palm Desert area to spend the day.
The next day we spent at Newport Beach in a house that my son and DIL rented for the week.
We have been having a VERY cool summer so I wanted to visit the desert for some warmth and the beach house was great too except for the overcast mornings.
The orchids are flowers I received from Mr AVO...I like to receive plants as they last much longer than a bouquet and of course, I'm partial to orchids.
I also decided to bake a blueberry buckle as my birthday cake and here is the result...
This buckle came out just great...I meant to cut and photograph it artfully, but it got eaten before I had a chance to do so.
If you are interested in the recipe, you can find it here...
I would be interested in knowing if you tried this recipe and how you like it.
