Look what arrived at my house!

Herman found a package at our garage door on Monday night when he got home, and this is what was inside.

And a bunch of ugly, little, bulb-like things were in there, too, but I didn’t take a picture of them. The instructions said to put one of them in the teapot and pour hot water over it. So I did, and this is what happened.

A beautiful flower magically emerged from the ugly, little bulb thingy. I allowed it to steep for five minutes and then…

I got Herman to pour while I did the picture taking…. and….

… then I took my tea out on the front porch to enjoy while watching my new grass grow. There was enough chrysanthemum tea for both of us, so he had a cup with me. We have a bunch more to try. Thank you Madina and Brandon. What a fun gift. Whenever I need a little magic, I’ll throw an ugly, little bulb in my new teapot, pour a little hot water over it and sit back and wait. It will be fun to see what the others turn out to be.
