myrtle & sage

So...LA was amazing. One of the highlights was a twilight hike at Runyon Canyon. As the sun set, the tiny buildings and houses and cars began to light up and we could see the city stretch for miles underneath. While I don't see myself leaving NYC any time soon, California does have that Californication appeal.

As we walked the dry brush emitted sweet, herbal smells. I stopped to pick sage leaves, crushing them between my fingers and releasing their scent. There was another bush; I think it was myrtle. I love myrtle, with it's fruity, almost apricot note.
