Trying to get the hang of this – an elder…

10 June 2011

I am still trying to get the hang of this stuff…!

This is an elder. In Norse myth the elder – Sambucus nigra – was embla, the first woman. –

They are in full bloom right now. The berries are edible but taste best mixed with other fruits as a sort of filler. Note the field beyond – empty of weeds.

    Cool, Dom! Can’t wait to see how your oxymoronically named (if the contrast between title & content can be termed an oxymoron) venture here proceeds!

    Ta! But really, I am an empty vessel. Empty tins make the most noise…

    I hope to post some weeds next week.
