Will look like this when it blooms in October, hopefully.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.... that sage must smell fantastic. There's nothing quite like a herb garden after rain or on a damp summer's evening.

Those look lovely. Wish I could see them in person.

I wish my thumbs were green. Sage smells so good in a garden.

wow. Beautiful! You must have a really impressive yard.

Very nice. And cenizo grows in Big Bend too.

My back yard looks nothing like this. It's more like Texas pattern baldness because the only flora we've got is St. Weedistine and what I like to call Hopeful Shrubs (like, hopefully we'll get around to planting some when the weather really cools).

How very breathtaking... I would like to vacation in your yard!

Unbelievable. Our backyard has already gone the Delaware brown route, the color destination of all things green here once Labor Day has come and gone. Anything colorful has been burned up, eaten up, or stepped on.

Darn varmints, those kids.

I always knew rain was good.

Thanks for sharing those beautiful flowers. We have a giant sage plant, but I don't think it gets flowers.

Some parts of Texas are certainly colorful. What beautiful sage--I would not have recognized what it was had you not told us. All of your plantings are lovely. Thanks for sharing.

We had a huge candle plant in our yard in Hawaii. At Christmas they bloom there and the locals call them Christmas Candles...Love your garden, so much love and care in it....
