Sage in the spring sunshine.
Right now the sage plants are coming back from winter. They never lose their leaves entirely, but spring is when the new growth occurs. As summer approaches they send up their purple flower spikes and then, with fall on the way, the leaves will be larger and broader than they are in the photo, and best for cooking. We use sage a lot with poultry and I add it to winter squash dishes, including my fall pumpkin raviolis.
