The sage and thyme on the first line of pictured seedlings caught my eye and I thought of the Simon & Garfunkel song 'Scarborough Fair' and started looking through the seedlings on offer to see if they were giving away rosemary as well."Scarborough Fair" (Child 2, Roud 12) is a traditional English ballad.
The song lists a number of impossible tasks given to a former lover who lives in Scarborough, North Yorkshire.
It was recorded by a number of musicians in the twentieth century, including the version by the 1960s folk rock duo Simon & Garfunkel.
As I'm looking at the 24 seedlings pictured in the newspaper my eyes were on the sage and I was wondering if I bought $30 worth of groceries would I get the sage, or one of the other 23 seedlings?
No rosemary was among the 24 seedling collectibles, but my mind wondered back to the rosemary garden I wrote about seeing on Bribie Island in this post -
|Rosemary from the fields of Gallipoli?!|
I had never seen sage in its natural state before, so I thought it would be cool to grow some sage in my backyard, as I've only ever used the herb in smudge sticks to cleanse new places I move into.
I was also listening to a 'Afraid of Nothing' podcast titled
'Afraid of Angels & NDEs' where Colleen said right at that moment I was looking at the sage in the newspaper to "protect yourself by using sage ..."
It's Not the Number of Moments That Make Up Life ...?
That really had me thinking about what the odds were at that moment:-)Then in the same newspaper I saw the butterfly that had landed on Naomi Osaka's face and realized that it was the same kind of butterfly I had written about that landed on my watch at
I just knew that had to be a good omen for Naomi, and it was it seems when I watched the evening news yesterday.
|World reacts to Serena’s teary exit from Aus Open|
And after trying some raw sage last night, I can honestly say that I would rather burn it than eat it:-)
