The other day I was cutting back the Feverfew and as this herb is related to Chamomile and bears a resemblance to that herb in it’s pretty daisy like flowers, well you could say I was harvesting my daisies.
The daisy harvest; it makes you think of Edwardian ladies in long flowing dresses gathering bunches of happy flowers. Maybe a few children playing with hoops etc and a very charming little doggy bouncing about……Okay, well there was me in my scruffy baggy jeans and check shirt, hardly the stuff of romantic novels, but hey ho!
Feverfew For Megranes;
Tea; Use 1 tablespoon of the feverfew leaves in a cup with boiling water to make this tea and sip after brewing for 8 minutes.It is suggested that you drink this tea every day to keep migranes at bay.
Sandwiches; You can also eat the leaves in a sandwich with some lettuce leaves to mask the rather bitter flavour.
To dry feverfew just hang the flowers and leaves on their stems upside down tied in small bunches of no more than 4 stems, so as air can circulate. Leave them in a shaded dry place for about 1 week.
I’d grow it just for its beauty alone. I just love all things daisy. But it’s so nice to know that it actually does some good as well.
A ceiling full of daisies. All those little sunshine faces looking down on me in HQ.
They are sunshine
They are summer
They are smiles
They are happy
I wish you all a Daisy Day today.
