Purple velvet....

Isn't this flower the most gorgeous, velvety shade of purple to be seen in nature? It actually feels as fabulous as it looks!
Mexican Sage is its name, a member of the salvia family. I have it growing in my front garden now(a result from cuttings taken a few months ago round the backyard where the parent plant was growing but had to make way for a new veggie patch!)
If looks could could the smell, believe me!!! Not very pleasant to my nose anyway.
I don't stop and smell it, just stand in awe of its beauty.

Of course, once having drunk deeply of this beautiful colour,I created this simple but different pendant/necklace, once again playing with the purple/amethyst theme from the sage.

I like it, do you?

P.S. The colourful tourmaline kiltpin sold the other day and is flying to its new home in Hawaii!!!

  1. Hi Maryann! The pins are gorgeous! And I didn't realize you had such a green thumb, I'll be looking here for information to my garden woes! :-)
