Καλό μήνα! (Kalo Mena) translates to ‘happy first day of the month’ as we like to say in Greece.

Μια διαφορετική προοπτική της γέφυρας του καναλιού της Κορίνθου. Δεν είμαι σίγουρη γιατί υπάρχουν πλαστικές σακούλες εκεί!
The month of November has long been the rainiest month in Greece. But, the rare ‘medicane’ (mediterranean + hurricane) that enveloped Greece this past Wednesday brought catastrophic flooding that took the lives of 21+ people, (many more have not been accounted for), and hundreds of people have been left homeless. This is the worst flooding Athens has seen in decades and it has left the country in a state of shock.
Global natural disasters are increasing by the day and whatever the cause, that fact is that we live in an unstable planet. Like our ancestors we have to adapt to the changes and continue to rebuild again. My sympathies and condolences to anyone who has lost someone to anyone who has lost a loved one the flooding, earthquakes and fires in recent times.
I taught Angelo to take some time out from his busy schedule to smell the flowers. Well, they’re not as fresh, but it’s still cute to see a cat do something so human.
This beautiful, tall flower is perfect for weddings.
Αυτό το όμορφο, ψηλό λουλούδι είναι ιδανικό για γάμους.
Winter is nearing its end and this cherry tree is coming alive again. Can’t wait to eat its’ sweet fruit.

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.
