A Brambly Hedge moment

On a day that started early with sun backlighting the long grass under the apple tree,
(laughingly referred to as the orchard)

and the urban wildlife newly emerging from dreys

and nests

wearing its summer face,

what better way to celebrate than to indulge in a little gathering

and preserving.
So in fine Brambly Hedge style, with a friendly wave to Susan's family

I made rose petal jam using Elspeth's recipe in her Wonderful Weekend book

and elderflower cordial from

Sophie Grigson's Country Kitchen.
And then we took them on a trip to a proper Orchard in Grantchester.

But that is a story for another day.
