It is native to Europe, but it is known throughout the world as a common weed. It grows in lawns, sidewalks, roadsides, cultivated fields, and many other places. This annual grass grows 20 centimeters to well over a meter in height, its mostly hairless stems ranging from green to purple-tinged in color. The leaf blades are hairless on the upper surfaces, twisting, and up to 30 centimeters long. The inflorescence is a stiff, cylindrical bundle of spikelets 2 to 15 centimeters long with short, blunt bristles. The panicle may appear yellow or yellow-tinged.

Salvia officinalis

Cur moriatur homo cui salvia crescit in horto? (Why should a man die who has sage growing in his garden?) This much-quoted Latin adage is from the famous medieval didactic poem on maintaining good health, the Regimen Sanitatis Salernitanum. (Salerno was the site of the first lay school of medicine in Europe. See the National Library of Medicine website for more about Salerno.) The proverb is one of many examples linking sage and longevity, e.g., the old English saw “He who would live for aye must eat sage in May.” The name salvia is derived from the Latin verb salvere, or “to save,” another tribute to its medicinal virtue.(http://blog.metmuseum.org/cloistersgardens/2010/09/07/salvia-save-us/)

The garden of my inner world

Garden has a strong symbolic meaning in our culture. Growing a garden, having a prosperous garden, planting a new garden, watering a garden-always with this second meaning of something growing, from good ideas, work well done and up to our health.

But do we plant our symbolic gardens after realistic templates, or do they grow out of our imagination? And do we plant our real gardens after the laws of botany or under the influence of  our imaginative gardens of our inner word?

I for myself am happy to have my own imaginative garden .It is a landscape I don’t have to water, but I do have to take care after plants there.Yet it pays out, whenever do I need some peace  I  escape into this garden of my inner world.There I paint flowers for myself, I hear birds singing in high trees, I rest in shadow of an old ginkgo, I walk under old oaks, I make bouquets from imaginative flowers not yet seen by nobody.I think a lot, sitting near pond with little  frogs and I smell jasmine, first roses and lilac,  sometimes I read a book there.There I can walk among sweet memories from my childhood and there I can meet people so heavily missed in my everyday life.

May I be happy enough to transform at least a tiny part ofjasmine this imaginative garden of mine into a real garden!

My botanical garden

Oh no, I don’t posses any botanical garden at all. But still, there is one which belongs to me .Or I belong to him, hard to say.We know each other for more than thirty years, I spent some of my most beautifull moments there, other time I came there to find some peace , to be with myself.I love to come there with my family ,I bring here my friends and I sometimes spend my alone time here.

Let me tell you more about my botanical garden, listen to my story and get inspired to find a botanical garden of your own-don’t wory, botanical gardens like to be shared.
