Beachy Sort of Morning

Happy Flag Day, Friday! I hope you all had a good week and are ready for the weekend.

We decided to have our coffee outside this morning. It is a typical beach morning with a slight misty overcast but not enough to really get wet.





I had to share this tuberous begonia with you...Isn't it the prettiest thing you've ever seen?  So delicate and tissue like.






The Mister had his coffee out of an early Father's Day gift from the grands...all of the kiddos are on it, minus our latest little sweet, Sydney (not to worry though, he keeps a photo of 'grandpa holding Sydney' in the car on the visor!).




Here is what he chose for his Fathers Day goodie, 'Blackberry Long Cake with Ginger Crumb', taken from my Vintage Cake Cookbook...Yum.

Speaking of Cookbooks...It is time to announce the winner of the Pizza cookbook giveaway..

My hubby drew the name out of a bowl and the winner is.....Roxie at Sweet Vintage of Mine, Congratulations Roxie, please send your info and I'll get that ordered right away.

I hope you all have a very happy Fathers Day weekend...Have a good one all of you dads out there!

That is a gorgeous begonia..it must be very mild where you are to be able to have it outside! That ginger crumbed blueberry cake sounds marvellous. I hope it works out well for you. Happy weekend!
