Sage

Wednesday, 07 May, Year 6 d.Tr. | Author: Mircea Popescu

I have a sage bush in my garden. This year, for the very first time in its life, it has bloomed. It has bloomed splendidly, grandiosely, purpley :

For the entirety of the month of March, the nearby rosemary bush - which has been flowering in ever increasing abundance and growing wildly with a clearly visible plan of pushing the house over - was covered in bees, to the degree it emitted an audible hum at all times, like it were about to takeoff or something. And throughout the month of April, the sage bushlet, covered in these purple flowers, has been a bumblebee heaven. I've seen possibly ALL the bumblebees living within a thousand acres, including small yearlings and whatnot. They hum on a slightly different frequency than the bees, and in properly chosen spots between the bushes there's interference.

For some reason all this makes me happy.
