We’ve had a glorious weekend and I’ve spent a lot of time outside, either gardening or pottering 🙂
My hubby and I went for a walking mission to find elderflowers. We mistakenly thought it would be easy as they grow just about everywhere, but no, the ones we found which were suitable (not near any heavy roads because of pollution) were heavily protected by nettles surrounding them!
We did eventually find enough flowers to make elderflower cordial – recipe here – it’s really easy to make and tastes delicious.
I use slightly less sugar than in the recipe and 4 lemons rather than a mix of lemons and limes.
Are you fed up of my bugs yet?
I did spend quite a bit of time at the weekend making some more – I made a beautiful metallic blue one 🙂 as well as others.
AND I decided what to do with them too.
In my bedroom I hang my necklaces from a hook on the wall – not a pretty hook – we’re talking about pure function here.
So I thought, ‘I wonder if my necklaces would look good hanging from my bug buttons?’
and one thing led to another and before you knew it a Tah-dah moment was born!
Those of you who are eagle eyed will notice that the rather ugly, but functional, hook is still on view so I’ll still have to do something about that!
Until next time,
