Bell glasses are used in all the gardens in Colonial Williamsburg to keep the seedlings warm on cool evenings. Green glass is often preferred, but I have not been able to discover the reason.
These “shamrocks” being sold at my local store look suspiciously like the clover I pull out of my lawn. But under the cloche they appear quite dainty and exotic!
Both the English and the Irish know the value of a tea time break,
and Irish Afternoon tea tastes especially delicious in my Irish Nicholas Mosse pottery.
My Irish scone recipe calls for a “fistful of currants” but I say why add fruit when there are mint chocolate chips in the pantry???
Mmmm. Look at that pure Irish butter melting on the scone!
I think scones always taste better than they look, don’t you? (NOT just the ones I make–all of them!)
