Mosaic Monday: Birthday Flowers & Blueberry Buckle

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.

Please drop by Mary's Little Red House to view all the other participants in this Mosaic Monday party.
Thank you for visiting...your comments make me smile.
