One of the plants I’m very excited to grow is Chamomile. As luck would have it while at the farmers market yesterday at my favorite herb stand I saw Chamomile advertised. I asked about it, and bought a bunch to steep into tea. The woman at the stand told me she would put the whole bunch in about one teapots worth of water, boil it for about 10 minutes then let it sit and steep. So that’s what I did (but not before taking some photos of such ethereal flowers).
Of course our kitten is a bit of a flower addict, and couldn’t help being part of the shoot.
The result was a really lovely bottle of chamomile tea. I tried some hot then bottled up the rest for later. If my own chamomile grows well, I think it will be something I will be planting more of.
