I OWE AN APOLOGY

I owe my purple sage bush an apology. I scoffed at it's crazy blooms Monday. I doubted it's prediction of rain with it's beautiful flowers. And we all know what happened Tuesday morning at about 4am; that storm was crazy!! All I know is that I won't doubt that crazy bush again.

Here's what Wikipedia says about the "purple sage:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Leucophyllum frutescens is an evergreen shrub in the figwort family, Scrophulariaceae, native to the state of Texas in the southwestern United States and the states of Coahuila, Nuevo León, and Tamaulipas in northern Mexico. Although commonly known as Texas sage, it is not a true sage and is distinct from the genus Salvia. The species is also called Texas Ranger, Texas rain sage, cenizo, Texas silverleaf, Texas barometerbush, ash-bush, wild lilac, purple sage, senisa, cenicilla, palo cenizo, or hierba del cenizo.

The solitary axillary flowers are bell- or funnel-shaped, with five lobes and two lips.
