the little things

i was so happy yesterday when i managed to harvest a loadfull of elderflowers from the garden just in time before the rain came. now i have a big bowl of elder/lemonade ripening in the fridge. it'll be done in a few days time, we can't wait, it smells heavenly!
i finally got my hands on the crocheting yarn that i plan to knit another kitchen towel out of. on needles size 2,5 (according to my measurer, that size doesn't exist in the u.s. but it's between u.s. sizes 1 and 2). let's just see how that goes.
the flowers me and my girl picked on our way home from the shoe shop just down the road. the kids both needed new shoes, and we all needed this lovely bouquet. it's the little things, you know.

Oh, yummy! I love elder flowers. I've only been able to buy them dried. I bet they are great fresh!

Mmmm, elderflowers are the best. My parents always had a bunch of cartons of homemade elderberry soup in the fridge that we'd eat all winter long with cold 'risengrød' in the middle. Sounds gross but it tastes fantastic and is super healthy too ;-)
