Winter is nearing its end and this cherry tree is coming alive again. Can’t wait to eat its’ sweet fruit.
Macro shot of a thyme plant in my garden
Thyme is a great plant to have it can be used to treat an ailing cough or sore throat by consuming it as a tea. Another use is as a mosquito repellant, just rub the plant in between your palms to release the oils. Thyme has a lot of vitamin A and C and when used in your favourite dish it has been proven to lower blood pressure. Also, thyme has antibacterial properties and can be used to fight acne. There are much more uses and that’s what I love about botanicals.

I have no laurels
to sit on
so I’ll count my losses
and carry gold crosses
I will win this war.

Spring is approaching and my garden is coming alive again. 🙂
H Άνοιξη πλησιάζει και τον κήπο μου ζωντανέψει και πάλι.
I took a Stroll through touristy Monastiraki and a street there with antiques. There were so many wonderful things to photograph. I don’t know why I didn’t come here before.
More pictures of the street and antiques on the way..
