Spring time

I made this treasury to celebrate the spring as I see it. Lots of colors, flowers and greens. It is happiness!

My aromatherapy pillow was featured in this treasury by Efi Warsh:

Natural food Colors transport #1 -pink/red pee

It was few month ago. I noticed a strange and worrying color. Every time I peed I noticed a pink - blood like color. Nothing hearted, but it was stressing.
Then I thought - did I eat something red? well- yes! I ate great sweet salad that I made from carrots, apples and common beets!

Beta voulgaris esculanta (common beets):

Beet-red is a common English expression derived from the annoying characteristic of beet-root cells to "leak," staining nearby objects a dark red-purple. The staining-agents are betanin and other betalain pigments. Many Americans dislike beets. "They taste like dirt" is a common complaint, but Australians and New Zealanders wouldn't think of eating their burgers without generous toppings of pickled beet-root. Eastern Europeans have enjoyed borscht since the 1600s. Want to know a secret? If you have ever eaten strawberry jam, yogurt, ice cream, breakfast cereal, red meat, pizza sauce or drank red soda or pink lemonade, you have ingested betanin. Beets are a rich source of boron, important in the production of human sex hormones. Betalains found in beet juice also have antiviral and antimicrobial properties. They demonstrate powerful antioxidant activity reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. Unless you prefer the fruit of the prickly-pear cactus, beets are the only other edible source of these valuable nutriceuticals. " ( from

עוד מידע על הסלק בעברית

"סלק אדום משפר את מערכת החיסון בגוף ע"י שיפור מעבר חמצן לתאים ולרקמות.

בטנין, הצבע האדום כהה שבסלק, יכול לגרום לצביעת הפרשות הגוף באדום כצבע הסלק האדום. תופעה זאת אינה מזיקה ותיעלם ברגע שמפסיקים לצרוך את הסלק."

Well, If you think you have a funny color - don't worry if your diet is beet red

Have a good week

Here come the sun

Here Comes The Sun

Lead vocal: George


Here comes the sun,
Here comes the sun, and I say
it's all right

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun,
Here comes the sun, and I say
it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun,
Here comes the sun, and I say
it's all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear
Here comes the sun,
Here comes the sun, and I say
it's all right

Here comes the sun,
Here comes the sun, and I say
it's all right
it's all right

A glance look at my wild garden

My mother's garden had shared photos and thoughts about her beautiful garden.
Well' my garden is nothing like her huge tasteful garden.
It is tiny, wild and sunny.
Spring time is here, and just before we will cut all the wild bush off- I collected some herbs from it and some photos:

Blue Lupine Lupinus pilosus
Avena sativa

Oat / Groats :

"The herb Avena Sativa (Oats) has been traditionally used as a 'nerve tonic' for hundreds of years. The herb Avena Sativa is the seed which is used medicinally and also for food. Fresh oat seed contains high levels of vitamin B, minerals and other nutrients. These are recognised to be important and beneficial for the functioning of the nervous system. The balance of constituents present in oat seed probably accounts for the 'restorative' benefits in depression, states of debility and exhaustion."(
