Sneezin, Wheezin, Coughin & Bleckky



Summer colds are the worst, why is that? And why do I have a summer cold, when it isnt officially summmer yet? Well enough of that, I must 'soldier on' today regardless! But Im making no promises as to whether or not I will be coherent.

Another orchid with an unreadable tag, I thought I could get a better shot on a sunnier day, but a little orange and black beetle ate holes all thru the flower. Blighter. Wonder if he brought me this cold as well?

Oh blah, I can't smell the orchid anyway! My nose is stuffed up and have to make an 'impression' today but not with snot! Think colds now are less comforted by dooners and soup because it's too warm! This is a wonderful orchid Lavender, and best not photographed in the sun anyway ... or the shade. The lighting is perfect! Sigh, it's so difficult with this light. Get ready to run out with a camera on a cloudy day though (cold and all)

Summer colds are the worst. In winter you expect to have one, you can wrap yourself up, have warm drinks and feel properly sorry for yourself. In summer you just feel cheated.

Overcast then ... when the sun is still lighting the atmosphere! You really can't tell your camera isn't any good by your blogged photographs! Ask Santa for a camera OR ELSE :)

There is a great formula that you can pick up at your local Chinese herb shop,,,,if you have them there...

anyway, it is anti-viral and ani-bacterial...works like magic...You can probably get it online as well. Its wonderful stuff.

Called Gan Mao Ling.....take it right when your cold is starting...BAM it will wack it right out.

Great to have in the medicine cabinet for the next cold!

Lavender said...

Pawhealer Cool! I know a place that can set me up with some, I will definately get some to have to hand for next time, what a great suggestion! Thank you Pawhealer! I cant tolerate any of the over the counter stuff, so this could really be a great help - Thanks again! :)
