Sage

1109151217a

Last spring I purchased a pretty little sage plant marked down at a local nursery.  I always have these big intentions of using herbs in my cooking and I do sometimes, but I always hate to cut the fresh herbs to use them.  I guess I like the aesthetic part of growing herbs more than actually throwing them in a pot and cooking with them.

The sage plant had such a beautiful leaf color all summer and  it looked so nice in my flower bed.  I was surprised about a month ago when it began to bloom.  Lovely red delicate flowers.  So pretty.

Guess I better hurry and pick some leaves to save for winter.  We have had a few light frosts but nothing that hurt my plants which are planted on the east side right along the foundation of the house.

    Ha! Glad to find someone else in the world who hates to cut growing things. I’m the same way with herbs (have several growing in pots), even hate cutting flowers! Like them better in nature.
