: The Poppy Revolution : #EVERYTHING
Here the index book >>> Why a poppy?
And from now onwards I will tell you why this flower is so important to me…
: episode n.11: #EVERYTHING
nothing of a poppy goes to waste
just like with pigs
so, during spring, when you find poppies in a green field,
and you pick them up, you can prepare a fresh salad and season it with lemon
or, when they’re ripe, you can cook them in a frying pan with olive oil, garlic and chilli pepper
if you cut its unripe part, we already know what happens, I already mentioned the treasure you can find there
and the seeds?
Shall we put them on the bread? We can also add them to a salad or prepare a precious oil
And the stems? What, really? YES, YOU CAN EAT THEM TOO!
You can chop them up – as you do with parsley…
And what about the petals? They can be eaten as well!
added to a salad, but with moderation, they’re very intense for the liver!
It’s better to use them to prepare an infusion, it helps to sleep better and to relax mind and body
the dye obtained by the petals can also be used as a paint for lips and cheeks: that vivid red
colour lights up the pale skin and fills it with joy after a cold winter
but when you don’t manage to obtain it…
it’s better to not insist… It’s not worth to throw your pearls before the pigs, because the pigs won’t care, and they’ll keep tumbling across the mud…
. you don’t have to feel sad about it .
even if it’s sad to think about how many narrow-minded people you can find during your path, walking in the streets like homo sapiens
one of the worst things in life is a wasted talent…
it’s such a shame
so use your life, all of it
don’t throw away a single piece of it
and as for the pig, as for the poppy, don’t waste a single day of your life
live today as if it was your last day, who knows what may happen tomorrow?
so do your best to feel alive
don’t fall in the routine of waking up every morning and doing the same thing, because even today… you’re alive

So far I found 14 different meanings hidden inside a poppy’s red petals; are you interested in some of them in particular?
