I drove up to Fredericksburg this Tuesday to visit Edyth O'Neill. We had a great day of "visiting" with dolls, as well as working in her garden a little bit, and setting up a couple of Christmas trees. I look forward to when she posts her decoration photos--she has a good eye for display, and the antiques to do it up right!
|A pile o' Izzies...and some un-Izzies, but they're all welcome.|
|Is it just me, or do their imperfections make them better?|

On my way out the door, Edyth had me prune the culinary sage that grows near the porch, so I was able to bring home an armload of it! I love sage, and so far have not been able to grow it successfully. Fredericksburg is up in the hill country, a little less humid than down here. I won't give up trying to grow it, but neither will I turn down an armload of organic sage! As soon as I got home, I separated out the bundles to hang for drying (our office smells wonderful right now) and shared some with my neighbor across the street who loves to cook.
|Lovely sage. Enough to share, and to dry and store for a long time.|
The Schultz supervised the Sage Bundling operation. Very fragrant business that is. When we came in, Willie wanted to know why we smelled so "herby".

Have a fabulous weekend!
