Budding out everywhere

Mountain sage
Over the weekend, we had about 3 inches of rain, a HUGE blessing! Most plants had already started budding out, but now they're going gangbusters. It's so neat to watch how they bud, either from new growth at the ground or on old growth. Sometimes both! I love to see how some also multiply and spread. It's going to be a BEAUTIFUL spring!

Love all your sages and especially chille pequin. Birds, especially blue jays, love it and it makes the best hot sauce. And it makes a wonderful ground cover under the oak trees or a little hedge or... And a great plant for fine textures.

This is the time I really miss having a garden.

Yes, I love chile pequins! I transplanted two last year, one of which is pictured above. We're so grateful for the rains! Everything should really grow this spring! Last year, our plants just survived and grew little.
