The elderflowers are at peak bloom right now - the country roads are lined with the flowering bushes. Our daughter Sara suggested elderflower tea would help Rog with his summer cold, so I picked a basketful. The tea (actually, an infusion, since there is not real tea in it) was delicate and delicious. I thought it would make a refreshing and exotic iced drink to sell at the farmers market, which was predicted to be hot and sultry this weekend.
