Making Lemon & Orange Peel

|Terry's little indoor garden -|
After making the peel, we sat down to tea with fresh-from-the-oven cranberry scones and Harney's Christmas tea. Through the remaining afternoon, we talked about crochet patterns; the differences in birds of America and birds of England (Terry's husband is British so he pulled his British bird book off the shelf to answer our questions); ways to celebrate the church calendar; what God is teaching us in relation to our children; and interesting places to visit.
Besides leaving with a sweet little hyacinth and handful of Harney's sample packages of tea, I left with what I always get from Rose Cottage - inspiration, knowledge and blessings from rich friendships.
