What a lush patch of Russian sage! I never met a salvia I didn't like, they are garden favorites in my climate

Love the blue of the Russian sage and of course your picture. You had bees? They disappeared here, Even the wild ones.

We had many bumblebees and honey bees. They were everywhere in my yard. One of the great things about this past summer was that, for unknown reasons, I did not have an Japanese Beetles. That, for me, is even better than the bees!

Beautiful plants and the bees sure know a good thing.
