To the Ancients, Sage was sacred ... salvia means the Savior.

The Savior!  This seems fitting for the holy week of Easter.

"The desire of sage is to render man immortal," instructs a late medieval treatise. Indeed, the sage plant has been praised highly throughout history and on many continents for its power of longevity. "How can a man grow old who has sage in his garden?" is the substance of an ancient proverb much quoted in China, Persia and parts of Europe.

I am always amazed at the hardiness of garden sage. This was taken while the three inches of snow we got yesterday was rapidly melting.

I don't use it much for cooking, as a little goes a long way. Mostly grow it because ...well, it looks cool and takes very little care (if any). confused  Oh, and the bees are a fan!honeybeebeebee
