~♥~September blessings friends~♥~
Does anyone else feel a little saddened to see summer time come to an end? We are back to homeschooling and will need to settle in to more of a routine again. It’s day 2, the days are still sunny, and routine is good! From the looks of my blog ~ it looks like it has been on a bit of a vacation too! 😉
One of my happy accomplishments this year was to start a mint garden. I was so excited about this, however the way they are spreading, I can see I probably should have a separate garden for each one, so come springtime, I may have to rethink this. I should have probably called this a “tea garden” for that is what I mostly intend to use these mints for. One thing I wanted to try growing was chamomile, which I added in along with the mints. I wanted to try drying some for tea.
My first attempts at drying the chamomile were in the oven. It seemed to take too long and I just wasn’t happy with the results. So I decided to try drying it like I do lavender, hanging it upside down. This seemed to work much better for me and there is the added blessing of the beauty and simplicity of it drying.
Now it’s tea time ~ sounds perfect for September!
I hope your days are filled with September loveliness!♥
