Finally, we can officially welcome Summer today! And I would love to celebrate it with a bouquet of chamomile! This wonderful herb perfectly represents summer for me. They are such happy and beneficial flowers with their bright sunny flower heads!
This most delicate illustration of Chamomile is from my book “In and out of the garden”, written and illustrated by the wonderful artist Sara Midda.
On this summer’s day I’ll preserve the last rhubarb from the garden and treat myself on a slow moment with a cup of fresh calming chamomile tea and a good book under our bow with blooming honeysuckle. Do you have some lovely summer plans for today?
“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching clouds float across the sky, is by no means a wast of time. ” John Lubbock
I wish you a beautiful and relaxing Summer season. Even though it might be different than you wished for, I hope you’ll be having relaxing days filled with gratitude, joy and the warmth of the sun.
