Locally the morning fog and the scent of the various components of the California chaparral combine producing a sweet yet pungent aroma for the morning

As I worked out this morning I noticed two things

First the dryness that comes along with the high pressure was gone and I could smell sage!

The  whole Salvia plant family is very interesting and most have a wonderful and varied scent.

It's easy to grow, almost always in flower and since it's a native plant it deals with the droughts rather well.

We have planed several varieties and on mornings like this the scent alone brings me back to the days of my youth when all of orange county was orange groves or native plants.

I am planning to head down to the beach later.

I understand there's been surf.
