Mauve...

Mauve touches for Summer days...


















...mauve is a very usuful herb for health...it's an anti-inflammatory and sedative...

















...used since antiquity for its positive effects...

















...but it's also very decorative...

















...simple flowers in glass jars to cheer up my home!

We are still boiling here! Almost 40°...very hot and very wet...not air-conditioned at work yet...the only way to survive is escaping to the beach...that's the reason why I'm not very present in the blog-world now!
For creative projects I'll have to wait a cooler time!
Thanks for your nice comments...I promise I'll be a better blogger as soon as possible!

Happy Summer week end!

Ciao Vale,
nel mio uffico abbiamo l'aria condizionata e malgrado ciò, abbiamo caldo...
Sciopera contro questo abuso ;))!
Adoro la malva & il suo colore :)
Buon fine settimana,

Zaira ha detto...

Cara, anche qui nella pianura padana ci si squaglia.....e non si riesce nemmeno a pensare! Ma quella malva è stupenda e mi fa pensare a luoghi verdi e freschi....o forse è il caldo che dà alla testa???

un abbraccio, buon weekend xx

Come ti capisco Vale!
Sto aspettando anch'io giorni più freschi per finire i miei lavoretti ed iniziarne di nuovi (ho una valanga di mobili e mobiletti che aspettano le mie mani ma....io non ce la faccio!!).
Bacione,

Che bella la malva, adoro il suo colore!!! l'anno scorso ho provato a seminarla ma non ho ottenuto buoni risultati, ma ci riproverò!!!!
Anche qui si bolle, a mare o sei nell'acqua, altrimenti non ci si riesce a stare neanche lì.....

Hi there,
So beautiful herbs. When I lived in the house I had so many herbs and I went out in the garden and picked some of them when I made dinner. Fresh herbs in the food are so fantastic. Now I have to buy small plants and I have them in the kitchen, but they usually don´t like the conditions there :(

Good for you to go to the beach. Soon you will see that the summer is over and we will look back at it and say - Ohhhh it was a fantastic summer!!!
Wish you a nice weekend!
Hugs Mia
