European Elderberry



This is a Sambuco tree I have in my back yard. Wikipedia helped me out, in English it is called European Elderberry (you can read more
here). It has a wonderful smell and it remembers me my grandmother nonna Bice that used to make delicious biscuits with its flowers. Unfortunately I don't know the recipe, but I guess Internet will help me.

You are so lucky to have this bush in your backyard. Go to Google and type in Elderberry Biscuit Recipe or Elderberry Jelly Recipe and you will have something to do with your elderberries.

Nice photograph.

Lovely delicate white flowers.

Che bell'albero di sambuco, io ne ho uno vicino a casa ed i suoi fiori sono profumatissimi, quasi inebrianti.
