Summer Vibe..........

Has 
summer 
       finally arrived...... 

I have been picking flowers from the garden
To brighten the day.


Last weekend we picked Elderflowers, I have been spurred on by Lucy at attic24 to make
 Elderflower Cordial.  I have been meaning
to make it for years but I always seem to miss picking the blooms when they are flowering

 
Not this year.  The recipe is from here.......


It is so delicious, so much nicer than bought
cordial and loads cheaper.


DS2 has made me a few labels, I somehow don't think
it will last long.



Despite the awful weather this summer we are picking lots of 
yummy strawberries from our allotment.

Happy Days.

You must have a beautiful garden! Let's hope we get some sun so you can sit outside now!
