One for the Dad's

It's not the usual but we were lucky to spend the whole weekend together....the four of us. Time in the garden and a visit to our local produce store, nursery, butcher, deli and pet stores (all my favourites)....
It was slow, easy and carefree.
And even more meaningful, it was our Father's Day today. The BBQ was fired up not once but twice this weekend. The house was abandoned for the garden and sunshine.....handstands, swinging and cuddles on the grass.... our spirits were flavoured with good food and togetherness.Appeasing and bountiful....we had a delicious celebratory lunch....to the sound of much "manly" Johnny Cash and the consistent little trills of "Happy Father's Day Daddy" from the girl....our time was effortless but loath to end. We consoled ourselves with Springs arrival and the anticipated return of alfresco dining except much much more often without any reason other than because we can.
For the Papa's....Happy Day and Thank you!

So nice to have a full weekend of family togetherness. So rare these days for our little family.

Sounds like a perfect celebration of Father's Day. I can just imagine the scene with Johnny Cash crooning in the background and the spread of food looks fantastic.

Looks like a lovely spread. Eating outdoors is such a pleasure - I'm looking forward to the bbq season too!

The nasturtiums look wonderful, such rich colours, I'm still waiting for the ones around here to flower. Looking forward to the bbq season also, so nice to be able to sit outside and relax in the warmth.
