Desert Sage~Natures’ Beauty

Dan made this pond years ago and we have all enjoyed a pleasant place to gather after  one of Debbie’s wonderful meals~it has been home for special  koi fish, frogs and ducks

Today I am happy to show a picture of my kid’s backyard pond with the Desert Sage in full bloom. It is one of natures most rugged native shrubs, it thrives in heat but is also cold-hardy. After a shower, it  covers itself  in beautiful violet purple blooms. I always noticed all of the sage on the rocky rolling hills between Sonora and Del Rio when there has been rain. What a thrill to see such beautiful color. It is a nice plant for the yard with soft silver-green leaves and it takes little care but needs alkaline, infertile soil. It is easy to transplant  a sage bush from the pasture~
