Chamomile Tea, the beginning

 The sweet smell of Chamomile wafts, even if you don’t see it, you know it has happened. We planted the chamomile by the roses, lemon thyme and oregano for a pure sensory banaza.

I used two gathering methods; bouquet and finger combing. The bouquet gets tied and hung to dry.

Now it’s time to wait. When we are feeling ill or just can’t sleep we will have our own chamomile tea to sooth us. One more thing we grow for ourselves.

Branching off into the world of flowers, never saw that coming.
