Thank you @greenappleagnes for your nice comment, the thumbsup and for the acorn.

I had to laugh when I read your comment about the Agastache being in the banner.

Great banner Marilyn!

Nice combination of plants Marilyn. The diversity of colors and shapes reminds me of an "old fashion" cottage garden. This reminds me of childhood when Mom planted similar gardens. Thanks for the memories. Thumbs up

Thank you @Legalily, @crawgarden, @cliftoncat, @cocoajuno, @GaNinFl, @kqcrna and @TBGDN for your nice comments.

Thank you @Baja_Costero, @bumplbea, @cliftoncat, @Fleur569, @Frenchy21, @GaNinFl, @GrammaChar, @greene, @honeyx4, @jmorth, @krobra, @Legalily, @TBGDN, @vic, @Whitebeard and @zuzu for the thumbsup.

Thank you @cliftoncat for the acorn.

Thank you @Frenchy21, @GaNinFl, @greenappleagnes, @krobra and @plantmanager for the thumbsup for the pic I posted above.

I'm happy y'all liked it as much as I do. Happy that it brought back childhood memories for you Leon.

I haven't grown that russian sage in many years, but one that I've been growing for a couple of years is russian sage Lacey Blue (trade name). Cultivar name: 'Lisslitt'. It is a beautiful color of blue. I haven't gotten any pics of it yet, but I hope to do so this year. Blue Spire russian sage is one of the parents of it. I spotted a gallon size pot of it at Kroger's last year and had to have it. Mine is starting to bloom now. Long blooming and is an upright variety. So happy I spotted Lacey Blue and am growing it.

Here's a pic from the database (not mine).



Here's some links that show pics of Lacey Blue.

Thank you again everyone. I tip my hat to you.
