In Central Europe one can find Meadow sage (Salvia pratensis) in many places. This plant prefers dry meadows and it grows up to 60 centimeters. One can easily recognize it by its blue flowers. Once you crush the leaves between your fingers, you can smell the typical sage odor. Flowers occur from late May until August. A short while after the pollination the plants produce seeds. Many pet birds like to eath these seeds. If they're accustomed to this food, budgies like to eat half-ripe and ripe seeds of the Meadow sage.
