Purple Sage


fragrant leaves
rough with musky spice
song of summer

Note: This is a good-bye to my herb garden, which spiced my soups and stews this summer and fall. Pictured are two varieties of purple sage, which are not culinary. I also grow lavender, green sage, thyme, oregano, basil, parsley, tarragon, mint, chives and rosemary. When my herb garden goes dormant for winter, I’ll be waiting for spring. Only the basil and rosemary won’t come back.

  1. How lovely Brenda!! 🙂 I would love to have a herb garden! I generally use dried herbs, but on occasions have bought those little pots with fresh plant herbs growing, only to be severely disappointed – they often have little or no flavour. I wonder how that is possible?!! Your herb garden looks beautiful! Do you dry any for winter?

  2. Lovely. Both the purple sage and your poem. ^_^ What is your all-time favorite spice to put in your meals? I’m obsessed with oregano! Anytime I go to Greece with my parents, my grandmother sends us back to the states with a bushel of dried oregano from her garden. It tastes and smell drastically different from the stuff I find here.
