Thankyou for all your lovely comments on my last post. I always reply to comments on the post so hope you know that I appreciate you passing by and have replied.
The garden's looking green and red with Autumnal colours - my solitary rose still blooms.
The woods are full of elderberry and I have made more cordial, it's so delicious I could keep making it forever.
The smell when it is cooking is better than aromatherapy
and I do wonder if I could have used the berries to dye my shirt - I recently took an old white shirt and dyed it pink with Dylon - it was a great result and I might try it again in another colour. The shirt was £5 from Matalan and old and the dye was £2.90 plus some salt.
These little outdoor spiders are very pretty, if you pick them up they curl up like a nut. I read somewhere that although a web looks typical to our eye, each one is unique in some way.
