Weekend Herb Blogging # 318 Round up

January is almost over and according to popular belief the last three days of this month have always been considered the coldest of the year (in Italian they are named i giorni della merla, blackbird days) , a good omen for a beautiful early Spring.
A common and popular legend tells the story of a blackbird (a whitebird in origin :-), which sought refuge with her ​​chicks in a chimney to the cold of those days. It came out just the first day of February, but with its beautiful white plumage turned into black by the sootThat is why from that day on all blackbirds were black.
But an exceptional freezing cold air from Siberia is blowing across Europe down to the Southest Italian regions, temperatures will drop dramatically many degrees below zero and it is announced to be the coldest period of the last thirty years ... shall we have then the most pleasant Spring of the last thirty years? :-)

No matter whatever is weatherly happening outside our kitchens, just lay your table, pour the wine in your glass, take your seat and enjoy a little bit of every single lovely colored seasonal dish our nice guests like to share!
