Mayflowers are the provincial flower of Nova Scotia, and I think that they are perfection. If you've never smelled them, they have a soft floral scent, but not in a heady, overpowering way. They're the first wild flowers to be found around here, and when I was a kid, my sister and I would go with my dad to pick them. I remember spreading them out all over the kitchen floor, gathering them into little bundles and delivering them to neighbours.
I'm doing some guest posting over at Brooklyn Homesteader for the next little while, and I'm jumping in with my Meyer Lemon Vanilla Jelly recipe. Pop on over and have a peek! Megan's best known for her bees (she's writing a book on beekeeping) and her blog has tons of info on all things homesteading.
