July has more than made up for the cold spring and early summer...it's been so HOT !
I like to mark the seasons with different traditions...
now it is elderflower time so I went with my sister to gather fresh elderflowers to make some cordial ..... it's almost ready to be bottled....this year I will freeze some to enjoy later ...maybe in ice cube trays so I can use a couple of cubes in a glass of water on a hot day ....mmmm!
The grass is long and dry and the trees and hedges have that lovely feeling of abundance that I love....
wishing you all a happy and peaceful summer weekend !
