Good Morning Sweet Duchess...
I had to pop over for my daily cup of tea, and much to my surprise you had a fairy cupcake. (You must stop by and say hello this morning and you will understand, as we are always on the same wave length. Kindred spirits for sure.) I hope you won't mind that I took two cupcakes, the need was there.

I chose a pink spoon ofcourse, and my tea was so scrumpous. I could have stayed and visited for hours, but as you know my garden has been calling me.

Yesterday was in the upper 70's here. I am sending you some rays of sunshine, enjoy them through the screen my sweet. It felt so wonderful to be outside.

Thank you as always for the being the hostess with the mostess. Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

Bonjour Duchess,
Everything looks so pretty, I've said it before but I love scones, I must have at least two - oh and I tried Auntie's scone recipe and they turned out fine! All previous attempts were, shall we say, uh, ok they were a disaster.
And those heartsting tugs are always good.
Have a good one Duchess!
