Sage on the brain
Seriously, I can’t stop thinking about it.
Between sage ice cream, sage and vanilla cupcakes, sage and peach leaf tea, sage smudging, I’m about ready to go outside and roll around until I’m covered in it.
Pictured: Salvia apiana (white sage) and salvia mellifera (black sage). the black sage is fully in bloom. The white sage is just starting to bloom. And the wild roses are starting to bloom too.
On another note, I find it very interesting to see which plants bloom at the same times, and how similar the properties are, or how they work together. For example, white sage and wild rose both have antiseptic properties. I bet, come late spring sore-throat season, the two combined in a tea would be a fantastic remedy, that is astringent enough to keep the body’s moisture levels good for the approaching hot summer.
