However I do spend much more time selecting fruit or flowers right into a wicker basket lately than I do digging, and nonetheless do use Grandma’s recipe for scones – actual scones, not the “made gentle with lemonade” form. I am attributable to make one other batch as quickly as I’ve proof-read this, and can take them out to the blokes within the garden, three of whom are beneath 10, however extraordinarily good at selecting lemons and gathering firewood.
