Signs of Spring

 Winter weather is predicted to arrive here in Kentucky again this week, 
but I always feel like spring is close when the March/April issues of 
Tea Time and Southern Lady magazines arrive in my mailbox.  
Both of these lovely publications are produced by Hoffman Media of Birmingham, AL. 
 The March/April Tea Time always puts me in the mood for a spring tea, 
and this issue does that.  I enjoy the articles, photography, recipes,
tea party planning and more!
I look forward to making the easy Gluten Free Cream Scones recipe on page 29.
It is made with gluten free all-purpose flour and heavy whipping cream. 
 The cover of the March/April Southern Lady with the classic lemon cake on the 
cover is a winner before I open the cover.  I love lemon desserts.  
The capital city Frankfort, Kentucky is featured in an 8-page article. 
 The article highlights the beautiful capitol building and governor's mansion, 
historic homes, shopping, and restaurants in the city located on the Kentucky River. 
It is always special to read about my home state in publications,
especially when I can enjoy them with a nice cup of tea.

At least if the weather outside is frightful, you have something delightful to read!

I was just reading Tea Time today; our weather is frightful today too - snow and lots of wind. I noted the GF scone recipe as well and will be giving it a try. I hope you have a wonderful week and that spring arrives soon!

Thank you for the visits and birthday wishes, Linda! I'm also a fan of lemon desserts. If you ever make it to Ontario during your travels, a visit to Kelly's Bake Shoppe is a must! Kelly's Facebook page and Instagram account features their mouth-watering, gluten-free treats. I don't have any dietary restrictions, but I would return to try more of Kelly's yummy baked goodies!

Okay, now I did renew my Tea Time subscription back before Christmas, so where's my copy? Oh well ... I'll be busy watching the New Hampshire primary coverage all week anyway! :)

P.S. We may get snow again tomorrow!

It is so fun when the spring magazine come in the mail. It definitely gets us in the mood for springtime and tea times full of flowers.

Hi Linda! I was really excited to see the new Tea Time in my mailbox too. I rushed home and flipped through the whole thing. I used to get Victoria too but stopped that subscription.
