30 Days Wild :: Day 18

bees

The bees love this bush – I even managed to catch one in flight (top right).  Unfortunately I have no idea what sort of bush it is (or the sort of bees).

Also managed to (finally) pick some elderflower to make the first elderflower cordial of the year.  Some is used for drinking, some for sorbet and some for flavouring in other dishes.  It smells divine – a real smell of summer – I always freeze some to save to bring out in the depths of winter to remind myself of the promise of summer to come.TWT-30-Days-Wild_countdown_18-150x150
