chicory flower – via wisewomanmentor

this flower signals end of summer for me, yet it’s been blooming since mid-July this hot, dry year. i’m hoping that i’m not too late to harvest some flowers: while everyone speaks of root tincture for the liver, i’d like to try flower tincture for bitters (digestion)
