Flaming June

Or so the picture would have you believe.  But actually, this is the only elderflower blossom in the garden right now and that patch of blue sky was just about big enough to fill the space.  The wind was pretty chilly and the temperature made today a long sleeve and cardigan day.  I’m hoping for a little warmth to bring out the elderflowers so that I can get going on this year’s cordial.  Right now, that’s going to be at least two weeks later than usual.
