S is for salvia and sedum

The sage flowers aren’t cut, I never think to put them in posies to give as gifts, so perhaps that’s why it has flourished to the size of a small shrub (not quite the size of the lavender hedge) but about two feet high and wide. Obviously, its leaves are cut roughly about once a week as they’re used in the kitchen.

Sedum is the succulent-leaved plant that most people recommend to cover flat rooves for a ‘living’ roof. Although there’s someone on the road from Donabate village to the strand that has grass growing on theirs (if you time your visit carefully you could see someone up there with a rotary blade lawnmower). Yes. I have a very idiosyncratic idea of the seven wonders of the world. 🙂
