I hope you've all had a good weekend!
Over the bank holiday weekend, we did some elderflower picking. We have several elderflower shrubs around us. As I was in search of the very best flowers, it meant picking them from several different shrubs.
Alan was on hand to help me access those more awkward branches or clear paths full of stinging nettles...
Once home, I set about making some elderflower cordial. I didn't have any citric acid so doubled the amount of lemons I used. Will see how it turns out...
Another 24 hours to go and it will be ready. I made it last night and already the scent is so beautiful.
I can't wait to bottle it and try it out....
