Back When - Sage Blooming

My niece Amy and I at her wedding many a moon ago. My brother had passed away and it fell on me to be the one to give her away. John Wells asked who she was when my nephew posted this on FB and I've had several other people ask who she was since then. Now you all know. She is married guys!

Can't believe I was so clean cut!


And a few pictures showing the sage blooming. I had to enhance the colors to bring out the purple so all other colors got enhanced to. Too bad it doesn't really look this good around here.

  4. Good pics!, but damn, I'm missing something else down there, first it was the spring bloom, then the summer heat, which I really don't mind, now the sage blooming! That's it, I'm just going to have to quit all this working crap. Another year or two, and I'll stay a little longer.......(then you'll be sorry ;-) ).

    I just love purple sage enhanced or not. Most of ours is gone will probably not bloom until next year.

    1. MsB, I think the blooms were so small on these that they just didn't show up too well? BTW it started POURING down at 12:25 AM and still is here at 1:05. Bet I get some water out of this, but I have a feeling some of my neighbors may get flooded in. :(
