I was out early morning for my chores. Temperatures are expected to remain high for the remainder of the week. I will be in Oakland for most of the week finishing the edits for the Ethics Guide. In addition to the benefit of high speed internet, temperatures in Oakland should be 20-25 degrees cooler by the Bay. Thank you, California micro-climates.
I pruned back the two longest established salvias, pink and royal blue, in upper end of the front slope garden. The goals are to avoid sprawl and conserve water. The sage smell when cutting was a pleasant start to the morning.
