2 years ago I grew 1 small German chamomile plant. I forgot to water it and it died. Last summer I accidentally kicked over the pot where it had been and in my postpartum sleep deprived haze, just sort of swept what I thought was some spent potting soil to the edge of my garden beds.
Then it rained this spring and I mean it really rained. This is what rose out of the chaos - beautiful, fragrant, healing flowers.
The medicinal properties of chamomile include but are not limited to:
-soothing gastrointestinal upset
Did I mention its a pretty plant that also smells nice?
It has been a timely reminder that the good, beautiful bits of this world are all around us, if we will only let them germinate and grow.
