The Hawthorne is SO amazing this year; look at these beautiful blossoms.
I harvested a basket full of the flowers to dry for tea; Hawthorn tea has the most amazing flavor. Sort of musky, almost like vanilla but not quite. In a conversation on line this morning I also had the idea that a dream pillow stuffed with dried flowers and leaves of Hawthorn, combined with Sweet Woodruff leaves and flowers, might be a wonderful thing. Soothing, sensual, and full of magic. I’m going to try it! The Dandelion root is for a coffee substitute, instructions found here.
It’s a gorgeous day today; I’m going to have some lunch and get back outside to enjoy the sunshine.
