Red Salvia

Red salvia always reminds me of Grandma Bessie,  who first introduced this flower to me many years ago!  I haven't placed it in my gardens for a few years, but when I found out at Suburban this spring, I had to plant some!  Showy even in a heat wave, these blooms shine when the days get hot.  I've never tried to capture them in oils, so maybe that week be next!  Love my time spent in the garden with ink and watercolor.  Pictured above is one of my favorite TWSBI Diamond fountain pens!  This one is filled with Robert Oster's Thunderstorm ink.  Painting number 3117 in 3117 days.
