On the list at my local organic farm this week was elderflower. So, I had to avail myself of the offer in order to make a batch of cordial.
The farmer was surprised that anyone was showing an interest but was nonetheless pleased that I did. She was even more pleased when she learned I eat nettles. ‘Come and pick them whenever you like’ was the offer, so next year I might just do that. (They are getting past it now.)
Back home, I realised I had company. It was a spider but not one I had ever seen before. I hope it likes my garden as much as elderflower.
