Rosemary




 Rosemary is my favourite herb. I love the way it smells, tastes and looks.

This year I bought 2 very large rosemary plants and placed them in planters rather than planting them in the garden. One planter sits beside the front walkway and is surrounded by trailing alysum. I was inspired by this photo I found on pinterest.



The other one is on the back patio near the BBQ.


Not only does it look amazing, it smells fantastic. I run my hand through it every time I walk by to release the aroma. Love it!

And I love the flavour of rosemary, especially with bbq meats. There is nothing better than grilled veal chops with rosemary on a summer evening.

But rosemary is not just for cooking.
