After posting the scone recipe below, I did bake us a batch of scones. Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, I was able to cut out a dozen scones. I sprinkled them with some Lavender Violet Vanilla Bean Sugarbefore I baked them. Unfortunately...I used 1 Tbl of baking soda instead of baking powder. Um...yuck!! We each had one while I was trying to figure out what was wrong, but then I tossed the rest. *sigh* The strawberries and lemon curd were delicious though!
Pumpkin enjoyed eating and rocking on the porch.
My next project will be to paint all the porch furniture and sew some cushions for the rockers and the settee. I'd like to get this done before the roses blooms so I can have a beautiful rose tea. I really want to make the berry soup in teacups that was featured in this month's "Victoria" magazine and I think a tea in honor of "The Blooming of the Roses" on the porch would be just delightful!
Care to join me?
