I love this time of year. The herbs and other flowering plants start to come alive and bloom. Sage grows really well in our hot South Texas dry summers and it requires very little water to survive and thrive.
I have several types of sage planted throughout the gardens and when they start to bloom they are always completely covered with bees. Alive and buzzing!
The buzzing sound almost drowns out the sounds of the birds that are chirping away.
Four more sage plant were added to one garden this spring. In fact, Sage, one of the writers that I met here at Not Dabbling in Normal, came over to help me plant somethings shortly after I got out of the hospital. She planted three sage plants amongst several other herbs and plants around the back yard.
Thank you Sage – they are all flourishing! I am very grateful for your help and I think of you every time I see the plants that you planted for me!
I have two sage plants in one garden on the east side of the house that aren’t getting enough sun to really do well (never thought I would say that about a plant here with such hot scorching summers) so I will move them this fall to a better spot.
I continue to see planting more sage in the future.
Do you grow sage in your gardens?
