Salvia Spathacea

This is going to be the first in a series of posts highlighting the plants I find along the trails during my hikes through our local hills. The most common plant I see is the one pictured above. This is the dried whorls of California native Humming Bird Sage (Salvia Spathacea). When in full bloom, the flowers are delicate and quite beautiful. Even in this dried state, I love the symmetry. We have quite a bit in our front yard, which is filled with water sipping natives.
