Frugal Living

Hello August from the Frugal Mommas

Tropical bloom |

Can you believe it’s August already?  Last week, we had college graduation and a move back to Atlanta.  It seemed so odd to be closing this door while others were opening it again for a new school year.  Please join me in wishing all of our children a happy and safe school year.

And speaking of education, how about this tropical bloom?  It’s called a Curcuma comosa and comes from the ginger family.  Surprisingly, it’s used in herbal remedies for various ailments, but is especially effective as an anti-inflammatory agent.  Now, I don’t know if the medicinal claims are true, but it certainly is a feast for the eyes.Another flower with stunning blooms and a medicinal value is the foxglove.  This flower gives us the heart medication known as digitalis. So pretty to look at and medicinal, too.  Who knew?  

It's good to be a Frugal Momma |

It’s such a treat to bring you a couple of my favorite photos, especially when they have a little neat story to go with.  Thanks for letting me share.  And now, it’s time for the Frugals!  YAY!!!
