The last time John and I were at Pleasant Places was for Thanksgiving. And was I ever thankful for the riot of fall color that awaited us there due to the fall rains.
It took but a minute to cut the Mexican Salvia and a few branches of Crepe Myrtle. There are many kinds of Salvia, but this one blooms in the fall with long stalks and velvety purple flowers, all delicately lined up at attention to say "Look at us!". The turquoise pot sits on our dining room table with the table runner that John lovingly picked out for me when he was on a mission trip to Guatamala. Doesn't it look beautiful with the flowers?
