To celebrate our launch we asked our culinary expert Karen Burns-Booth from Lavender and Lovage to suggest a suitable showstopper! We're absolutely delighted with the beautiful spring gateau-type cake that uses seasonal elderflowers and simple to make edible flowers.

Red sky in the morning shepherds warning! 🐑

Amazing sunrise over the village this morning. Looks like there might be some rain on the way. A good excuse to stay inside and keep warm and cosy!

Just loving these gorgeous days we’ve been having, with blue skies and frosty mornings. The colours and shades of Autumn in the garden are so beautiful at the moment and the crab apple looks stunning. Leaving nature to do it’s job and hopefully the seeds will be bedding in nicely for next year.

Go to the link in our bio to read about November in the @blackberrygarden.
Thank you to the lovely Alison Levey, award winning garden blogger.

We’re off to the village bonfire and fireworks display tonight so hope the rain stays away.

Have a lovely weekend everyone! 🍁🍂

Protect your local hedgerows! 🐝

Apart from looking fabulous, hedgerows are an extremely valuable habitat for wildlife as well as providing a natural boundary for farmers fields. Many species of bird depend on the hedgerows for shelter and food. As we all become more aware of the importance of looking after wildlife and the bio diverse environments which surround us - it’s good to remember the circle of life that goes on inside and outside these wonderful precious natural environments. 💚

Happy hedgerow Tuesday.

Oh lovely Autumn. Cosy blankets by the fire, the smell of woodsmoke in the air, fragrant candles and crumbles bubbling away in the Aga. 🍁

Pop the kettle on and read how Ellen from Rhubarb & Hare adores Autumn and how she cozies up her home with wild berries from the hedgerow and candles, like this Pumpkin Spice one featured from Ethel&Co - small kind things you can do for yourself
