The King has won! Well, the King Arthur scone recipe is the winner.
The recipe can be found HERE. What I like about this recipe is that it is a basic one to start with. Then you add what you want. I added almonds and dried cherries. For the garden club meeting I think I’ll make cherry and chocolate ones and a batch of cinnamon ones. And I’ll add a bit more sugar.
They are wonderful warm. But even this morning, a day later, they are good cold. They aren’t as dry as the first ones I made, or as cakey as the other batch. A real happy medium to me!
So with that decision finished, I’m off to the irises blooming now. It’s interesting to see how they are blooming at different times this year. I numbered them last year as to the order they bloomed. I decided then to keep the numbers and the descriptions and just go with the day they bloom. Changing the numbers every year was driving me nuts!
These were irises Dave brought over from his farm when we moved here in 2007. Last year this was the 19th of our irises to bloom, appearing on May 1. This year it is one of the first! Could be this wacky weather we are having.
This one is appearing a bit late.
Istanbul is one of my favorites appearing a couple days earlier than last year.
Have been working on some crafty projects and even scrapbooked a bit yesterday. More about all of that later. Have a great day!
