BeautifulThere was a storm last weekend, so I harvested 80% of the chamomiles and put them in the water - most of the flowers will keep blooming, and it looked lovely.
With this method, they are pretty cut flowers with a sweet scent. We enjoy them with our eyes and noses.

Today, I have plenty of time, so I do the final harvesting. You don't need to stay in the garden and try to collect those tiny flowers. I simply brought the vase inside and harvested them while watching Netflix.

Another advantage, is you can stop whenever you want - and the rest of them can still be a decorative item in any corner.

Usually, it is suggested to harvest them when they are in a fuller blossom - for securing the most essence.

This status will be a bit late, but well, totally ok for me.

I took the petals only, as Bees love them so much.
