One time back when I was a Deer Harvester I dropped a couple of quartered Whitetails by a Processor that had been recommend to me - - - I told him I wanted the usual backstrap and roast wrapped separate and the rest made into smoked link sauSAGE BUT I forgot to tell him NOT to use any Sage - - - - Well, when I picked the meat up and was putting it in my large coolers to take home I instantly knew from the smell of sage that I would be giving my sauSAGE away. Sorry Pals - - just don't like it. :dont:

When it comes to spices "I" am very uneducated and experienced - - - I guess it's just the life style that I've spent 75+ years acquiring - - - and except for BBQ and Grilling spices, it's pretty much salt, pepper, a little garlic, own-yawn and jalapenos that create my dishes - - - guess I should have gotten out more. :laughing7:

Great shot bill, this past summer we has the most butterflies I've seen sincere I was a kid. Mainly monarchs, I love them flying around my wife's garden. Weather here's in single digit Celsius. - 3 the other day. 5 weeks to spring, I love spring.

Same song but SECOND verse.
"The Sage in Bloom is like Perfume
Clap Clap Clap Clap
"Deep in the Heart of :texas:

This is a pretty as they've been this year and aroma to die for :cheers:
If you notice there's a Black and Yeller Pollenator that I had to battle for Camera Position.
He was joined by some other Pollenators and they were enjoying themselves in the bloom centers.

Our sage is not as good as that. I use sage in my sage and onion stuffing for the cavity of a chicken. Using breadcrumbs and an egg and a few other things. Kids always first in for stuffing. Good shot of the bee too.

It was very quiet and peaceful. Caught a few trout. 11 yr old caught her first trout and had it for dinner. That was a huge deal…lots of fun.
