You can go ahead and tell the awards committee that I’m ready to except my Genius of the Year Award 🙄 because I only recently — and by that I mean yesterday — realized that chamomile plants smell like chamomile tea.
OK, I know, but it wasn’t obvious to me…
TJ’s had these dainty white and yellow cut flowers that I thought were daisies at first, but nope, chamomile flowers. So I brought a bouquet home.
I’ve never had a bouquet of chamomile flowers before, and when I was cutting them and putting them in a vase, they smelled just like chamomile tea.
It’s the leaves that are the most fragrant, though, not the flowers, so if you pull off a leaf and rub it between your fingers, ooh! — it smells just like the tea.
I don’t know why this is so shocking to me, but it is…
Also blowing my mind is the fact that it’s Saturday, and I’m REALLY happy about that. 🙂 This was an extra long one for me because I tried a different morning schedule (Connor made me do it; she’s been waking up earlier), and I’m still trying to adjust.
