Flowers for a hot day

DAY 155 (7 SEPTEMBER) – Baby sage (Salvia microphylla) (Sanlúcar de Barrameda)

I love this grand boulevard that links the old town of Sanlúcar de Barrameda with the estuary of the Guadalquivir. Entering the town, you pass through winding avenues of jacarandas – here in bloom today (which must be a second flowering I think). And this boulevard is the ideal place to park and contemplate.

Lining it down one side are many of these baby sage bushes, throwing out dainty pink flowers set against the sandy thoroughfare.

I found it grows wild in Arizona and Mexico. Sanlúcar certainly felt like Arizona today, with 36 degrees beating down onto the mouth of the famous river.
