I'm pretty sure it's Young Living's fault that I have fallen further in love with plants of all kinds. Nowadays, I'm always looking at plants to see if I can recognize and identify them.
Yesterday morning, I was heading to work and I saw some purple sage, in full bloom.
I'm a desert girl. I live in the land of high heat, sweltering cars, and the horrible feeling of walking out of a perfectly comfortable air conditioned house into the breathtaking heat of the dog days of August.
But purple sage? A beautiful thing to see when in it's glory! And it makes the heat bearable...because it bears a promise of cooling to come.
Abloom as in this picture, the purple sage is telling us West Texans, "Hey, y'all. Rain...it is a'coming this way...and soon."
Better than the farmer's almanac, I tell you.
And what a blessing the rain is, when does it fall. It's rained the last two days.
I love it. And I love purple sage bushes.
Long may they bloom.
