2020—Blooming

Culinary Sage grows in a large pot on my patio. My main use for it is in butternut squash soup and since I make that often in the fall and winter, the sage gets trimmed frequently so it never gets a chance to bloom. I was surprised the other day to see it covered with stalks lined with purple flowers. Until recently, I haven’t been home enough to keep it trimmed. I was even more surprised when one of the Anna’s Hummingbirds visited each clump while I watched. My hummers love other types of salvia in my garden, especially the Pineapple Sage so I shouldn’t have been surprised. I’ll try to capture the hummer at the sage while it’s still blooming.
