Tiny fragrant flowers and a powdering of pollen
Elderflower umbels are in full bloom in May or June depending on the climate.
One lovely way of using them is to make Elderflower jelly.
Steep the flowers in water for three days
add lemon juice and sugar
and boil until thickened.
This year I've made Marmalade and Elderflower Jelly
Wind down the canvas awning
and set a pretty table outside surrounded by flowers
Put some flowers in a vase
Cut some raisin and nut bread
Make fresh coffee
Chunky orange takes centre stage
but golden Elderflower edges in on the sidelines.
Which one shall I choose?
Why, one of each is the only solution!
Won't you join me?
What do you like for breakfast?
