the necessary ingredients

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”

“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”

“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.
― A.A. Milne

    Just made these beauties today after a massive 5kg Blueberry haul in Ngatea, NZ. Scones were gorgeous! So full of nourishing goodness and even the boys/men of my family were impressed with their flavour and wholesome nature. Love your recipes and thanks for sharing another beauty!
