I have a very basic camera, so the photos are not great, but I still wanted to share the beautiful May with you, and take the opportunity to show Elderflowers to my readers who may not know them!
You can find my recipe for Elderflower cordial here, and the recipe for Elderflower cakes here.
|Elderflowers, I need about 30 of these to make|
a batch of Elderflower Cordial
|The May blossom is stunning|
|So many of the trees look beautiful|
I can imagine Anne (of Green Gables) just adoring them!
|The blossom is everywhere|
|On both trees and bushes|
|The buttercups were pleased to see the sunshine|
|The elderflowers were far more difficult to see|
|Nestled up high in the branches|
|I'm going to need something, or someone, to help me|
gather the elderberries when I go foraging!
|They are so very pretty and delicate|
|If you can't find local elderflowers, then I suggest|
you buy some cordial, the taste and smell will take
you straight to an English summer meadow,
and you will still be able to bake Elderflower cakes.
