The early dawn walks seem to fill me with sustainable energy to draw upon during the busy working day. Its lunchtime, the sun is gorgeous but soon rain is forecast. I thought I'd enjoy a writing lunch. Share the gorgeous little flowers which are adorning the chalky North Downs like a colourful blanket. The sun commencing its daily quest, when so low in the sky creates such a magical tapestry of colours. the heavy seductive floral scents hang beautifully in the morning air just waiting to fill your senses with all things celebratory. The Elderflower I appreciatively pick - at around 5.30am - makes me chuckle when I drink it. Its playful deliciousness always bring a sense of happy Summertime feelings from the inside out. Cheeky little magical Elderflower, has the energy of a rousing mischievous fairy. When I make our Elderflower juice, I love its awesome simplicity. I never add anything at all. The early morning Elderflower is bursting with fragrance & flavour. A glass jug, half a dozen sprigs of Elderflower, jug filled with water & pop it in the fridge all day; serves the most delightful & delicious Summer drink.
The surprise gift of Honeysuckle - which has blossomed amongst the Hawthorn bush - is in full bloom & smelling quite beautiful. I must read up all which can be shared from the exotic looking Honeysuckle.
The red clover, the dandelion, burdock, thistle, nettles.. all have so much to share. One day at a time, although I am not sowing & growing much. i am still attuned to the glorious seasons, offerings & changes & utilising all of them to the best of my abilities.
With Love from the chalky North Downs, here are some morning glories to share.
I have my pocket size Gem book to try to help me identify the little flowers & herbs. The morning walk is full of surprise, such an array of hedgerow bouquets. All so beautiful & all so unique.
