Autumn on a doorstep

It could be also called high summer, but looking close, I can say that autumn is slowly approaching. Morning fog. Leaves are loosing their green color, bushes and trees are full of fruit, either edible for us, or just for animals. Some are ripe, some will be soon.Yesterday I took lunch for Ž to the place where he is working at the moment. Mowing the meadows. It is beautiful out there. All around are fields of corn and there on a reserve is an oasis of meadows. I should take time and look for summer fruit from which I will make some jam. Blackberries are ripe and elderberries are black, too. If only horseflies were not stinging so much... :)

Do you make elderberry wine or cordial too, Pina?

Pina said...

No, I don't. I don't drink wine and rarely anything else that includes alcohol. Usually Ž prepares such drinks; I will give him a hint. Thank you Emily. :)

I haven't drunk it myself because we don't have elderberries here. But I have seen it mentioned in a lot of English recipes.
