Blackberry Scones – Willey’s Weekly Bake 103

Another week another bake. The weeks are just flying by at the moment, I have now finished my placement up in Shrewsbury so I am back home in Hampshire for just under 6 weeks. I am looking forward to having a bit of a summer and enjoy some time to relax and also spend some time in Kent seeing friends and with my number 1 – Jake before heading back to Harper to finish my degree and complete my final year! This weeks bake I had a craving for scones and really wanted to use all the delicious blackberries that are filling the hedgerows over the last few weeks, I had help from three little helpers to pick my blackberries but really they didn’t help much as they just ate the rest of the blackberries!
