I have a lot of plants around the house, its something to do when I have nothing to do. I told the story about my pepper plants the other day, but this story is about another plant I have, its a ole big Purple Sage out back and with all the rain it's full of flowers. All my life I've seen Purple Sage growing all over the place here and thought how pretty they were when in bloom, I just glanced at them and thought hey that's a pretty plant and kept on going about my business, I never stopped and really looked at them. Today I was setting watching TV and looked outside an saw that Purple Sage in it's full bloomed self and thought, I'm going to get a picture of it in all it's glory. I grab my camera and out the door I went, I get up close to that bush and it came alive with bee's just busy as heck gathering pollen to take back to their hive, I just stand there a minute and take it all in. So I start taking pictures of my pretty little Purple Sage, this angle looks good click I take a picture, then this angle looks better then another click, I click until I had taken 20 something pictures of that plant. So off to the house I go to down load the pictures I just took. I start looking at those pictures and am in awe at how beautiful the blooms are on those plants. I have never took the time to really look at the blooms on those plants. For a short time there I was at peace with myself ,I had stopped and smelled the roses as the saying goes. For all of you that are like me 99% of the time and not smelling the roses. I want to share my moment of peace.
It just goes to show,some times we just need to stop and smell the roses or in this case the purple sage.
