Be Wild and Free
It smells of summer, of blooming apple trees and lilac flowers. The orchard is filled with sounds, the grass already looks like a sea of green and the land is bursting with life! And I paint every day, more energetic and with more pleasure:) Mainly I paint T-shirts and the warm season feels closer and closer, while most of my orders consists of them. I even managed to paint one for me, because I felt a little embarrassed not to wear my own creations.
When I have time for reading, especially before going to sleep, I enjoy this gem of a book : "The wild edible plants of Romania", written by Constantin Dragulescu. It's exactly what I needed for my newest passion: edible weeds. It has clear illustrations, it's very well documented, it has many recipes and it fits in my pocket. I even tried some of the plants and they were delicious. It is amazing how from one generation to the other we simply forgot about nature's gifts.
