Summer In a Bottle

As I was driving home from work in the last week I saw that the elderflowers were starting to blossom. The scent of elderflower for me is like the scent of summer, and every year for the last few years we have gone out picking bags of elderflowers in the hedgerows and made wine from them. This summer we plan to do the same.
Last year's wine is now drinking well, and when the cork comes out and I smell the fragrant mix of elderflowers and lemon, it is like the essence of summer captured in a bottle of wine.

Here's to summer!
