Truth is, this current one's a herb (again). I'm pretty sure I've shown a picture of an ornamental variety of these (and named em too)

And here's another hint: this one's very much a (****) bush.  ;D ---> think western movies

Yup it's a sage bush - and it actually looks like tumble weed when naked. Tried using in dishes but, I don't know ... don't much care for the taste of it.

SAGE!!

Our wise one, jess, beat me to it.

So you don't even put sage in your turkey dressing, Roland? Mebbe they don't eat turkey in Canada.

On the Indian blanket, I will look at the foliage on mine when I get home tonite. That should provide the answer.

Did I already say, even my italian parsley's producing flowers - must be in the second year of it's growth - should be producing seeds, if I'm lucky.

Can't seem to get a good picture of this Yarrow. Maingy looking plant, but it's introduction in the main flowerbed a number of years ago was to contrast diff'rnt leaffy textures (lupin, lilly, poppies, tulips and yarrow). Got used to it and because of the (temporary) move of the poppies and other plants to the back yard 2 years ago (when I was reviving the main flowerbed), most of it got to be now growing in the back. Anyways, - it's a real tall plant that needs to be tied up.


Hey - check out the background of this photo ... you can see the newest temporary home of the blue iris!
