What To Share

June is being typical June I suppose

One day brilliant sunshine

The next almost monsoon-like

The end of this week brings us a full moon

And my Mother always said that the weather changed with a new moon

So a couple or more weeks of wet then


The elder is flowering around us

Though I shall have to wait for drier conditions before picking this years harvest

I wish to bring home my dehydrator

I don't have the storage facility to keep lots of cordial made so think drying some flower heads would be a good idea

That way I can make smaller batches when required



I abruptly stopped knitting when the evenings became a little lighter

This usually happens each year

I'm not sure exactly why

It just does

I'll pick it up again come Summers end



I love reading

Especially blogs at the moment

I'm very interested in topics of a natural theme

Of our changing seasons

Old folklore


Hedgerow finds and makes


Work is very demanding at the moment

I need to chill

Not easy when evil beings are running amok in our land

People are hurting

This makes me sad

But together we are strong

  1. The weather has been very changeable here too. A few of my pots have blown over this morning, it's so windy.
    I hope you manage to gather some elderflowers. We now have three large bottles of cordial. It should last us a while as it is very strong so we don't need to use much.
    Much love Jackie. X

  2. For Yarrow....thank you for your lovely comment...unfortunately I pressed delete in error instead of publish...lunchtime knitting...sounds good to me! x

  3. The weather has been 'interesting' recently, but we did need the rain as the rivers and water table were so low, but .... we need sunshine too! I still knit, I need to, my hands have to be kept busy, so in the evenings, when we finally sit down, even if it is a row or two, I knit :)
