Salvia 'Purple Majesty' in the Greenhouse
Through a complex series of trades, I ended up watering this Sunday. It was a great day to water. I love the greenhouses in the spring. The plants are responding to the longer day with accelerated growth. Over the next few months thousands will move outdoors and do whatever they do! It's pretty exciting. A few flowers here and there on the salvias in the greenhouses are a tiny preview of what they'll do in the Herb Garden this summer. The older I get, the more I appreciate salvias.
