Mixed Berry Scones

My parents left this past weekend and it has been gloomy these 3 days.It took longer for me to convince them to come over than their stay with me.When my dad came 2 years ago, he was determined not to come back as he always felt they are dependent on us for everything when they were here.So,it took longer than expected to bring him here.With mom, it was not as difficult.You know how moms are!
As a child I never realized the sacrifices my parents (for that matter, any parent) had to make.Now, I do really appreciate all that they have done but sometimes I wonder if I should have had that realization early on!
I like to go to airports to pick up some one, not to drop off.Even when I drop off some one not so close, I almost end up with tears in my eyes.My guess- it is the location that might be the problem!As my parents went in, my childhood memories flooded my mind while I was wandering restlessly outside.I always wish/ed, US was closer to India or it takes only a few hours and not a day to go to India, not to forget all the tight airline regulations.
All in all, I had some great time with them although it was a short trip and I was hoping for it to not end!

Recipe adapted from Ina's strawberry scones
(Makes 14 to 16 scones)
