No.8 & 9 | Texas sage & morning light

Thursday, October 9, 2014

I love Texas sage bushes!  With their silver-green leaves; small violet, bell-shaped flowers; hummingbird magnetism; drought tolerance; low maintenance and overall appearance: they are without doubt my favourite native plant.

Here at our place in Northwest Hills, we have a Texas sage bush growing right outside our kitchen window and I enjoy admiring it any time of the day, but especially in the mornings when the sun shines its soft, white rays directly through the leaves - making the bush appear as if it's creating its own, angelic glow.   

Other plants with greener leaves look radiant when the rays of morning light fall upon them, and are beautiful in their own way, but the way my beloved Texas sage is illuminated in such a heavenly light, I find myself staring, mesmerized and awaiting descending angels.
