Dahlias and friends today in Garden
Knew a Cpl in the Signals in about 1985, good guy but hated the Army so PVRD.
Lovely blooms .... the result of good gardening and kind weather .... the weather in Northumberland continues to be abysmal ... we have had more days of cold and rain ... today the Sun came out with 50 mph gusting winds ... rounded off tonight with rain ..
You know, I was thinking along the same lines myself at teatime. I was brought up in Devon, and was well aware of the debate. So I carried out some basic scientific research.Nice pics so Mrs WS's hard work paying off. Niceties to one side the important question now arises:
Is it :-
Scone - Jam - Cream
Your whole credibility lies in this simple questions.
I eat my peas with honey..............On the Cream Scone debate ... we used to visit a " Posh Cafe " where the Cream Teas were served with Chantilly Cream and very nice too .... some from the deep South may think it is the equivalent of eating Peas off your knife at a Mess Bash .... but each to his own .
Lovely pictures as ever. I was wondering how old the castle is. Is it ancient or a Victorian version ?
Melincwrt Waterfalls again, this time the top trail, a nice early morning walk**

Too much water, not enough dead things.
Well said!You know, I was thinking along the same lines myself at teatime. I was brought up in Devon, and was well aware of the debate. So I carried out some basic scientific research.
I had two scones, so four halfs. (Yes, I am a pig)
The first one was scone, then jam, then cream
The second one was scone, then cream, then jam.
The third was as the first.
The fourth was as the second.
And definitely NO butter on any of them.
The result was startling. They all tasted exactly the same.
So I reckon my credibility is shot to hell with supporters of both sides of the argument, and additionally with the heretics who advocate butter.
Much more important, though, is the debate as to whether it is pronounced skon or skone.
(And no faffing with skoon, @Auld-Yin !)

In 2014 this place was excellent, well worth a visit [now ?]
