Following on from a fabulous day foraging and making delicious recipes and remedies from the abundance of fresh new green leaves and shoots in our Spring workshop, Janine and I are looking forward to our summer adventure.
The hedgerows are now filled with an abundance of flowers and by July we will be enjoying the heady perfume of the flowers from the Tilia, or lime tree.
A tisane (tea) made out of fresh or dried lime blossoms is used extensively in France on a regular basis to calm the mind and soothe a frayed nervous system or to aid restorative sleep. It tastes & looks like honey!
Why not join us on Sunday July 15th to celebrate the beauty and the properties of the summer flowers.
