    • They are very pretty, but actually the elder flower is what comes before the elderberry on an elder bush. A lot of places plant them to use as screens as they grow very thick and very fast. Both the flower and the berries are used in lots of different ways; wines, cordial, cooking, as well as natural medicines. I did attempt to search it online to find a bit more about it for you but there’s so much info out there I was going google eyed looking at it.

      🙂 Quite apart from the search engine telling me that “Elder bush” was an American President ! 🙂
