Sage


At Julie's request, here is the photo of pineapple sage that didn't make the cut on Anzac day. The red flowers are rather unassuming but seem to be there most of the year so a welcome addition to the garden ... a shame you can't smell the fragrance of the leaves ... nice in fruit drinks.

Reflection:
Proverbs 13:14 (New International Version)
The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life,
turning a man from the snares of death.

  1. Except that I called it passionfruit ... oops ...

    It is not at all like I thunk. Is it prostrate (hope that is the spelling I want!)? And do you use the leaves?

    I think I am going to try a Rosemary: I loved the smell on ANZAC Day and my friend in Melbourne has them all round her pool. As tall as me they are!

  2. No, it's a small shrub, very spindly in my case so that's why I just chopped off the flowers and lay them on a rock. Yes it's the leaves you use. Rosemary is lovely and I've found it easy to grow.
