Today was probably the hottest day of the year and I enjoyed a leisurely cycle ride to Hitchin. Having been thoroughly tortured by my physiotherapist yesterday I struggled to do anything that didn't involve freewheeling! Elderflowers are probably at their best now and these flowers smelt gorgeous. They can be eaten straight off the plant but it seemed a shame to pick them so I didn't. I found these along a shady bridleway and in one of my favourite hedges.
