"Medicinal plant: Made In LA: Our Own Backyard"
16 December 2014
Where can we go on a vacation during the "Bitter Winter?"
Primrose: Mugwort: Yarrow: Sage: Oak: Holly-as in Holly Land; the name formally known all over the world as Hollywood.
When one gets weary of jet set traveling in addition to work travel's "overboard;" I, can attest to feeling my OLDen bones aching and my mind booked on being "mindfulness."
Being mindful of the kitchen's own backyard: here lies a blossoming purple hues home grown Cattleyas Orchids in contrast to the Poinsettia's colorful Holidays hues of red, green and "golden eyes..."
Purple strings of Holiday Lightings are the newest of LED lights glittering on a "trellis trees" of the neighborhood's front yards.
Our City of Angels: Los Angeles where the Hollywood Sign lies above the hills as our home rest at the foot of the hills.
Where the Iconic Shangri-La Hotel resides on the longest beach stretch of the bluest hues in Santa Monica though non affiliated with the Golden Cirlce, bah hum bug!
And yet, our " Backyard Staycation" turns out to be the most "wonderful time of the year" where there's presents under the tree; Peacefulness and Healthy "surroundings" of the
"Spirits of the Holiday Colors."
A Most: "authentic and the sweetest" and A Warmest: " tummy time of the year,"
