Black Sage at Dusk

The black sage is in bloom--a native wild plant--what a very beautiful bush this is with a delicate ring of flowers around each bud. When the buds are full of seeds you can shake out the seeds and eat them--I found this out on a nature walk--but the seeds don't really taste like much--I wonder what kinds of vitamins or minerals are in the seeds. The native American Indians toasted and ground the seeds.
