Calendula flowers

Busy picking & drying herbs & flowers to make remedies! The calendula flower isn't just pretty, it encourages healing, fights fungal infections, cures diaper rash & helps digestion. Perhaps you need some? Let me know as I am making it into a nourishing cream and will pick more (just need space for drying!!)

Tour des Muverans - Day IV

Col de Demècre to Pont de Nant.
Loooooooooong last day! We rounded the corner with the fabulous Dents du Midi and all the other friendly peaks glowing at us in the sunshine. After a view down to the Lac Léman we puttered & huffed & puffed our way up to the Col des Pierriers Blancs, before the never ending descent of 1300 meters back to the car!
Yippeee & bravo!

Tour des Muverans - Day III

Cabane Rambert to Col de Demècre.
The Grand & Petit Muveran were watching over us as we descended into Ovronnaz. We then took a well deserved dip in the Lac de Fully as the Mont Blanc stood gard. Really beautiful and worthwhile trip.

Tour des Muverans - Day II

Derborence to the Cabane Rambert.
Gorgeous walk through lunar rock piles before arriving at the 360 degree view at the Cabane Rambert. The sunset & sunrise were just astounding. All the Alpes Valaisannes to the Mont Blanc and the Dents du Midi right at the front door.

Tour des Muverans - Day I

Pont de Nant to the Buvette du Pas de Cheville.
We got caught by a rain storm just at the col, right after passing through a bolder & grass field with tiny lakes filled with alpine Salamanders!

Verbier Botza Market

Sunday market in Verbier, I have developed my product line to include arnica creme from flowers of the Grand Combin for your aching muschles, as well as pots of mint & lemon balm tea, and a new mixture of cooking herbs.
To add to the fun I am also selling some lavender sachets which work wonders at keeping bugs out of your long underwear - plus you wont have to wash them all season!!

Mont Fort Sunrise

Meeting arnica! So much fun to hike from the rocky alpine slopes of the col des Gentianes down to the sweet meadows of Verbier. We not only stopped to admire the different flora along the way, but even used arnica flowers where we were hurt!

Forget the sunrise! The full moon was up over the Massif du Mont Blanc at the same time! Absolutely breathtaking and unique!
