Nature’s Garden

Other than garlic and a few perennials, I decided this year I wasn’t going to plant anything of my own.  I was just going to harvest Nature’s garden. The diversity is far greater than anything I could fit in my backyard. Today, we collected a bag of elderberry blossoms. After the petals dry and drop off the flowers they will make delicious tea.

 

The mulberries we ate right off of the tree as a fresh snack. If we had known we were going to find them, we would have brought a container to put them in-everyone knows vanilla ice cream is best with fresh mulberries.
