El Dorado County Fair -- herbs

The El Dorado County Fair turned out to be a great stop after getting a brief lecture on plant propagation from a "wise" woman. Funny thing was she had cuttings from plants that I have recently begun to explore. Salvia plants offer a great way to contrast the garden with different leaf shapes, colors and texture which can add a cool depth effect when applied properly.

Picked up S. greggii and S.clevelandii to compliment my growing herb collection. Also got a great cutting of lavendula agustifolia which is really common around here. So common that it's really not worth buying when you can just get a pinch from here or there. Now I just need to find some lavendula dentata -- this plant has distinct leaves and a great flower that punctures the background.
