French Glacé Cherry Scones Recipe

Our guest bedroom is ready, The Man has chosen himself a nice barbecue, the fun can now begin!
Friends and family are booking dates to come and visit us, and our diaries are filling up with barbecue parties. 
...(happy sigh)...
I dreamed of having a house to share it with The Man and the people I love, so I could not be happier. 
We just need a bit more sun to make it a perfect summer in our new home. Well, that might be asking for too much... ;-)
