if you see it, buy it

Tuesday I was at HomeDepot and had to check out the garden stuff. Among the rows and rows of purple salvia, I came across one scraggly looking white salvia! I've never seen a white one in a garden store but have seen them in catalogs. There was no label on the pot or tag or anything identifying it. But I am quite certain it was white salvia.

But it did look scraggly, and I don't have a place ready to put it, and have enough other things on the list to do already so I did not buy it.

Overcome with desire to have it, I drove over today hoping to find it waiting for me.

It was gone.

RE: if you see it, buy it

If you're coming to the cape this summer, you can have some of my white salvia - it's in a very overcrowded garden, and I could really use the space. It's nice, but perennial salvias don't wow me - actually, that's true for most white flowers.

RE: if you see it, buy it

hmm, maybe it's because I have no white, that I am on a white kick. I was thinking of a white salvia and a white spirea.

I might take you up on that... we're going to be down Aug 11 - 18.
