Apparently, I failed to take sufficient pics of Salvia dorrii when it was blooming and looking good--how embarrassing.
But I came across this here, what I call 'reference-pic', where she is definitely looking primo Smiling and it's not good enough to crop. So, please enjoy the sage and don't focus on the rest of the experiment. Thanks

Thanks all!
I have several things to fix--I was hedging bets when I crammed it all in last year and besides the perpetual change that is gardening, there are some what-was-I-thinking moves that need to be made! (like the monster mexican hat plant that seeded everywhere and dwarfed its neighbors)

Her patient, patient boyfriend just hijacked the keyboard to say that we call it "plant tetris" around here...back to your regularly scheduled "plant porn"...

And also pressed "finished" as she was doubled over in laughter...

dirt edit: I should really remove that hijack comment, but it's dang funny and true! except the doubly patient part...
