ROMANIA-UK-ECONOMY-ELDER FLOWER

TO GO WITH AFP STORY by ISABELLE WESSELINGH - Picture taken on May 25, 2013 shows local residents loading bags filled with elder flowers on a donkey to transport them to a processing factory nearby the village of Saschiz in the Transylvania region of Romania. If elder trees add to the beauty of Romania's landscapes, their white flowers help its rural economy grow when they are turned into cordials exported to Britain and Japan. Every year Romanians anxiously await the blossom season in May and June to pick the delicately-scented flowers and concoct a traditional soft drink called 'socata'.
