Posts Tagged ‘Sage’

So, I finally finished up in the office and headed outdoors to prune the living hell out of everything. For my own uses later, here’s the list:

1) sage – both
2) lavender – Spanish only
3) roses – backyard only
4) passion-fruit vine
5) euryops (daisy bush)
6) Japanese eggplant…will it live?
7) whirling butterfly plant (guara)
9) rosemary – both
10) grape vine
11) Chinese wisteria (vines widdershins – of course)
12) lilac – both (look up info…they’re sad)

The pictures I promised of all the springiness:

Lilac bud. I will have to do some research on these little plants. They haven’t done well and it’s time I do something about it.

This spectacular bloom is the most exotic looking flower in the garden right now. Can you guess what it is? The common clover: most people pull it out as weeds…people are sooooo silly!

can you guess?

In honor of the season of fertility, I’m sharing a picture of my penis cactus. Six months of the year it does not receive adequate sun. The other six months it does not receive adequate water. I believe both are appropriate and those of you with penises know exactly what I mean. Reality is what it is and I leave these cacti where they stand in honor of that:

I wish you could have smelled this jasmine. In fact, I trimmed the rosemary, lavender and jasmine all at once. The backyard smelled so amazing. Screw the rapture, I made paradise my own damned self!

And now we celebrate a day that is more complete:

Do not let Sunday be taken from you. If your soul has no Sunday, it becomes an orphan. – Albert Schweitzer

In keeping with my general rule of doing whatever the hell I want on a Sunday, I have decided to not say much today. Instead, I’m sharing photos I’ve taken over the last couple days in the garden, then I’m off to read a book or fidget in the potting shed – generally avoiding all signs of reality and society for as long as possible. Yes, I’m kind of a hermit.

My new garden sculpture, the Peas, waits in the sun while I figure out a place to hang it…thank you Lori and Gina – I love the Peas!

Happy Buddha sits near a strangely late lettuce flower.

I leave off trimming the sage as long as possible, so I don’t deny our hummingbirds one of their favorite snacks!

Happy Sunday everybody!
