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 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!!!
