Two photos from the garden this afternoon. Lovely to see the hummingbird sage (Salvia spathacea) coming into bloom.

Not so many pomegranates left any more; it's a treat to have them around.

@mappingcat That's a gorgeous Salvia. I don't think we have it here but I'll check.

I marvel at salvia: so many of them, so varied, from tiny ones to toppling giants to "wait, is that a salvia?"

@katebowles This one lives up to its common name and is good at attracting hummingbirds! There are lots of salvias native to California: at least 17 species.

@mappingcat Several of them have made their way here. I have I think 11 in my garden, a bit accidentally. I've lost a couple over the years -- the big ones.
