foraging 2014

Yesterday saw the beginnings of our foraging for 2014. We were out walking when we spotted that the blackberries are black. Already! proof of the lovely summer we are having.

picking the berries.

The picture is showing the berries up as very red- they are black lol. We have followed this recipe to make elderflower cordial previously, but never made it with fruit. I will let you know in a few days how it turns out!
