Going Away, Ferns and Russian Sage

Hey Everyone ;o) I hope you are all having a great weekend! I'm going away, but will be back tomorrow! I promise to catch up with you all, when I get back ;o)

I would like to share some pictures of my plants ;o) The first one is my ferns. I love my ferns! As you can see, I have a lot of them! LOL! Underneath them are bugle weeds, hostas and Russian sage ;o) Can't see any of them yet! LOL! Well, maybe if you look closely, you can ;o)





My next picture is one of my Russian sage. I have 4 of these plants. They are my favorite! Soon they will start to blossom with little purple flowers. I will take a picture of that, when it happens. The smell from them is very strong! Flowery, but spicey! I like to mix my Russian sage with my lavender, and bring them inside. Or sometimes I burn my Russian sage, for a smudging or incense. If any of you want a hardy plant, that gets as big as you want it, this is the plant for you! I have seen people have hedges out of them! They don't need good soil and no watering! You have to water them once you plant them, but after, nope! And the smell, brings in the bees, butterflies, and dragonflies! I promise to take a picture, when the purple flowers come out ;o)



Blessings everyone ;o) Talk to you when I get back ;o)

  14. Lovely plants Stacy! I can smell the sage from here!!! Actually we went gold panning ( well mostly driving down a horrendous road trying to get away from everyone elses claims!) and stumbled on some yellow flowers that smelled incredible. I have no idea what they were. Maybe I'll post the pic on my blog and you might know what they are. That was the real "gold find" of the day! Hugs! Deb
