Mealy Blue Sage Buds by Winecup lineariloba 9902

If mealy blue sage (Salvia farinacea) served last time as a visual echo behind an unraveling anemone seed head, now you get a close look at the soft and fuzzy buds of that sage. This time the background halo is from a whitish version of a winecup (Callirhoe involucrata var. lineariloba).

Today’s photograph is from land along E. University Blvd. in Georgetown on April 3.
