Drying Chamomile

There was a massive chamomile plant that somehow migrated into my community garden plot.  It was getting all tangled in my beans so I pulled it and brought it home with me to dry.  I plucked each individual flower off the stems and threw the stems into my compost.  I planted the one big root system into my garden at home–I'm thinking I may build up the small bed beside my walkway into a big perennial herb garden, for lots of tea! 
 I lay out the flowers on a baking sheet to dry. I don't have screens so I'll have to shake the tray every few days to ensure even drying. Voila! Tea to be!
