Beliefs, Honeysuckle and Elderflowers

04 Jun

I love this poster designed by a friend.

At the moment, our regular walk is around the Flat Lode trail where there are so many different tracks that we are spoilt for choice. There was a lane where the Bluebells were the dominant flower, now that is mostly green. There’s another track that has been packed with Foxgloves which are just beginning to go over. Our favourite track right now is one we have called Honeysuckle Alley as it is a narrow lane lined with the plants where the wonderful scent of the Honeysuckle is almost overpowering.

We collected lots of Elderflower blossoms on the walk and they are now steeping in the syrup, ready for the cordial to be bottled up tomorrow.

For other bloggers, I’m finding the new block system quite irritating! I can’t see a proper preview any more so can’t check how it’s going to look. Titles seem to get lost sometimes – perhaps I just have to keep learning!!

    I’ve stuck with the old one too, at least for now. I tried block editor but it felt frustrating and clunky, possibly because I felt under time pressure to work it out. Maybe I’ll play with it again another time.

    I think I’m finally getting the hang of the new block system, at least for one of my blogs. I’ve found that it seems to work differently depending on the blog theme.

    Old one available until 2022 at least. So they say.

    Regarding the new editor, you can still use the classic editor if you prefer. Either under Wpadmin or if you click on the three dots top right I think on the new editor at the bottom is an option to use the old one.

      Thank you! I like being able to choose my own gallery layout and have a good preview, neither of which seem possible on the block version. Using your three dots advice, I am back in happy time! 🙂

    Everyone says that new system is difficult, I am still using the old one! That poster is great!

      I was using the old one until about 4 days ago. I really don’t like it but had a message saying that they were closing down the old one soon so thought I’d better get to know it. Yesterday’s post was a disaster!! 🙂
