Wordless Wednesday: Tea Leaves

Summer Tea Leaves

In the morning, as the sun is still making its way over the pine, I take my scissors and trim the fabric of my landscape... wild strawberry, dandelion, and violet leaves... raspberry leaves, oregano, mint... and, oops, an unripe blueberry... it all goes into the tea water... green, lush, free it steeps and fills the kitchen with a light fragrance... and I drink the beauty of the day.

I can so see why you would have a label of "contentment" for this post.

Nothing wrong with that! Try catnip tea to relax at bedtime - it doesnt affect us the same as cats! LOL
