scones with my sister.

My sister came to visit a couple of weeks ago and I made scones with lemon curd and fresh strawberries. If only I could have this every morning!

  1. Oh my goodness that looks so lovely and delicious! Very different to what we call 'scones' here in Australia...I want to try your version! Thanks for a lovely blog. Jess :)

  2. This photograph is beautiful. The hands (yours or your sister's?) are incredibly beautiful - remind me of those Stieglitz pictures of Georgia O'Keeffe.

  3. jane, they are my sister's hands. and i will tell her what you said! she is always saying how she dislikes her hands! but she is an artist, so i think they are extra beautiful. :)

    jess, the recipe is by julia child and it's called "buttermilk scones." i love it because it has lemon zest in it! i cut the actual recipe in half, because it was only a breakfast for three. here's the recipe i found online: http://lequatreheures.blogspot.com/2009/10/basic-buttermilk-scones.html
