Little meadow bunnies and Elderflower cordial








Today our dear Angora bunnies Grace and Emma delivered little ones. These are our first babies so everyone is over joyed! The girls decided that for Olivia's birthday celebration, we would make some Elderflower cordial. This time with a citrus twist. Our elderflower bush is full of blooms. It really is the most wonderful refreshing juice. It has loads of healing properties too. We have also made Elderberry cordial. Great for the coughs and colds. These beautiful roses are from our rose garden. I LOVE to fill my home with roses. This week we will be making our Christmas Potpourri. All our petals are dry and ready . Cinnamon and Dried oranges all ready and waiting. Its this time of the year that we really start making and preparing for our December month. My homemade gifts are slowly coming together.
A happy weekend to you all.

Dear Suzanne!
Each one of your posts keeps getting more beautiful than the last if that is even possible! The warmth, creativity and love that emanates through your photos and writing is felt! What beautiful ways you spend your days with your lovely family! The more I get to know you the more I hope to have that tea together : ) Many warm wishes to you and your sweet new animal babies! I can't wait to see what your potpourri entails as I have many herbs and spices left from our last project just waiting for us to create with!

I have to laugh... I have my roving on my stove at this very moment. I am staining it with tea in EXACTLY the same white enamel pot as I see in your photographs!!
Too funny!
It looks so lovely there... so fresh and Springy.
Blessings and magic.

And I forgot to add how amazing your baby bunnies are... I hope you post 100d's of photos of them as they get bigger. K is getting a bunny for her birthday, 27th December, and so we are all about bunnies in our house... she's going to have a fit when I show her your babies!!

I feel so happy when I visit your blog and see your daughters picking flowers and making wonderful nectars with them. I've never had elderberry anything....is it delicious? Is it worth planting some bushes? Beth
