Favorite Things and A Whole Lotta Scones

The sun has set but it’s still light enough to see trees, meadow, and the white blossoms dappling the blackberry bushes. Summer has arrived at last bearing hot sunshine, cooling breezes and nights warm enough to leave the windows open. I love evening at my place, love how the darker it gets the quieter it gets until at last I go to bed with only the sound of the creek and the wind in the trees lulling me to sleep.

I don’t have any food to share with you today because in a moment of lunacy I made waaaay too many scones for my Narnian High Tea yesterday, and will be happily noshing on them for the next day or two.Ā  Admittedly, I am not fretting over the situation. Almond scones with whiskey cream, lime curd and blueberries?? Yes, please!!

Instead I will share a few pictures of things that delighted me today.

Unexpected roses from a kindly neighbor.

A sunny spot for napping.

My Grandmother’s old watering can.

A pretty little turquoise bowl that makes my heart flutter when the sun shines through it.

And dusk at my home sweet home.

What things are delighting you today?

I hope you have a smashingly fabulous weekend, dear ones. I’ll see you soon!
