The Final Poppy and a Wonderful Rhubarb Scone Recipe

The weather has been almost dreamy for the last couple of weeks.  Well, except for the other night when there was a torando watch.  Just a little FYI, we don’t get tornados around here.  I went online and saw the radar of “something” approaching our area, and some horrific pictures on the weather channel of roofs getting ripped off in Nebraska and hail the size of elephants pummeling commercial buildings.  I was scared.  I am afraid of storms, hurricanes, tropical storms, and blizzards.  I was even more concerned when I went to my favorite weather site, Ray’s Weather, and he wasn’t saying anything, just those red colored warnings and watches that make me nervous.

Well, nothing happened and the next morning I woke up to yet another dreamy morning, did my chores to get my body moving, and took the final poppy picture.  So long beloved poppies until next spring!

I’ve been making a lot with rhubarb since it is the season.  I always make this wonderful swiss pound cake with rhubarb and the classic and always delicious swiss rhubarb custard tart, and that’s usually enough for us.  So when I saw this recipe for “Naughty Rhubarb Scones” on one of my favorite food blogs, Food52, I thought I would take a look and make it.  I didn’t use the heavy cream, but used the kefir I make, and it was so delicious.  And that means a lot since I really don’t like rhubarb – it was so delicious, you should make it before the rhubarb season is over.   Click here to see the original recipe.

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful life, in whatever way you choose.  And since I no longer worry about things since they might not happen, life is becoming a wonderful dream.
