Hope you don't mind, but I shared your comment on a blog we have associated with wc4eb.org -- Washtenaw Citizens for Ecological Balance. Your comment is right on. And those who say it is only about flowers being eaten are dead wrong.

Edger Landscape Design

Nice article Brian. Thanks for using my photo of the Cleveland Sage! Its a great plant! I have several in my back yard and I love to enjoy the fragrance of the leaves when I stroll through. In fact when I'm designing in deer country, which is almost everywhere in my county, I turn to the sages to get deer resistant flower color.
