It’s snowing in Norway today and I must say that even if it rains here in Cypress Texas, today I’m very grateful for my extended summer here.
Everything grows tremendously fast here in the garden. Maybe all the plants are hurrying to grow as much as they can manage before the heat kicks in? Now there are around 77 * F (25 * C) and quite humid. And it grows so that I almost see the difference from morning to evening.
Take for example the Sage (Salvia officinalis) I bought at the grocery store in the winter, as a rather small, sickly-looking plant. Now it stands in full bloom with lots of flowers. Home in Scandinavia Sage barely gets flowers if it is lucky that it survives the winter at all.
And the Basil is almost alarming huge consider the fact that it was sown only two months ago!
