I saw a spot of red color in the messy front garden. When I investigated I was rewarded with this:
Thumb of 2014-05-01/greene/f278a0

This plant has been happily growing without my knowledge hidden among some Cyperus involucratus/Umbrella sedge, a young palm tree (don't know which type) and the Lonicera sempervirens/a red honeysuckle inherited from my Mom.

I think it may be a Salvia greggii Autumn Sage but am not sure. The leaves and flowers are larger than the Salvia microphylla that I have.

From the leaf and flower positioning it looks to be a S. microphylla. Nice weed.

Beautiful indeed! I love the deep richness of the color.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
