What a beautiful garden you have, Art, full of wonderful daylilies and salvias. Thank you so much for letting us come and see it today. It must be fun to watch the patterns of color and form appear and change and overlap each day, as some plants come into bloom and others finish.

My husband mentioned our "Salvia Save Me!" song on's a link to the video -it's 2 minutes long.

Here is a link that might be useful: Salvia, Salvia Save Me
