Happy Mother’s Day!

I bought some very inexpensive flowers from this little flower market in the Northern Suburbs of Athens. There was music, dancing and flowers.  Looks like we are prepping for summer!

Αγόρασα μερικά πολύ φθηνά λουλούδια από αυτή την μικρή αγορά λουλουδιών στα βόρεια προάστια της Αθήνας. Υπήρχε μουσική, χορός και λουλούδια. Φαίνεται ότι είμαστε έτοιμοι για το καλοκαίρι!

Marigolds/ Κατιφέδες

The “herb of the sun’ as it is also called, is symbolic of passion and creativity.

The Marigold flower is said to be used by the early Christians to be placed on the altar of The Virgin Mary instead of gold coins, hence the name ‘Mary’s gold’.

The flower can be used to ease the pain of wasp or bee stings and even burns and skin infections.
