The weather has conspired to put us all in a truly bright Easter mood.
A celebration of lambing at Tablehurst Farm over two sunny Saturdays drew the community together and brought joy, great food and entertainment to everyone present. There was something for everyone, including a demonstration on how to build a straw bale house by Peter Brown. I confess, I got my hands dirty... I HAD to play with the clay - the most amazing feeling! Cool and velvety, almost sensual and so useful, dressing the straw bale to create a sturdy, breathable and kind layer.
It got me thinking about the things we can do to bring us back to Nature and Her wisdom, especially at this time of year. What struck me is how far removed we have become from our natural blueprint and how easy it can be to re-connect, especially with the weather getting kinder and the flowers peeking out!
So here is my easy recipe for some Easter Fizz: you can make it at home and serve it at the Easter table.
Elle's Flower Petals Fizz
You will need:
a couple of handfuls primrose flowers, 4-5 dandelion flowers, 3-4 flower clusters of lady's smock
a litre jar and around a litre of water kefir from first fermentation
3-5 tsp raw cane sugar
the juice of half a lemon and half a lemon cut into quarters
a little hot water to dissolve the sugar in
a little patience!
