Phlomis fruticosa

Phlomis Fruticosa

I spotted this lovely Jerusalem Sage

on a walk thru Queen Anne a few days ago

 and was so taken with the light shining thru the leaves,

It inspired me to get started on some Thank You

notes I need to get going on.

According the gentleman who runs the

flower stall  at the Farmers Market and

had a bunch of them in a bucket,

it is a Phlomis fruticosa or Phlomis for short.

He refused to even entertain the idea that

it may have a nickname!

Never mind, whatever you want to call it,

it’s lovely in person and on paper!
