Elderflower pressé quicker than wine if you want a refreshing drink, but you need to add a bit of lemon juice. You can snort elderflower as well because it is apparently good for inflammation of the nasal cavity and sinuses, (scientific evidence lacking).Elderflower wine ?
Smudger, we believe they are. We are not really sure, at first, they looked like a grassy decoration. Then the flowers arrived. Going to take the photo to the garden center where we purchased.Are they Oriental Lillies Richard? Fantastic scent compared to Asiatic Lillies.
Plum jam is wonderful!Got a pear a plum and a cherry and in its fifth year an olive, I'm told the olive only fruits after 7 to 12 years.
Still eating last years home made plum jam, never get the cherries the birds get there first, nice pears though.
My neighbour has two apple trees that produce a lot of fruit but it never gets picked always rots on the ground, even the next door kids can't be bothered to scrump it.
Reminds me of scrumping in the 1950's in Weoley Castle, by the bowling green there was a garden with a very high hedge and an Apple tree full of fruit but out of reach. Non of the kids could get at it so it was left alone. I had an idea so I got a long bean cane and fitted a wire ring with a razor blade in front, next one of Mums old stockings was fitted to the wire.i think the fun in scrumping was the chase by the owner,not so much getting the fruit
