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.
