Rosemary Photos and Information

Rosemary grows along the mediterranean coast. Known as Rosmarinus officinalis, this delightfully fragrant herb is delicious in many dishes, and creates great shampoo as well. Mary - Jesus's mother - was reputed to love rosemary and laid her cloak over a rosemary bush.

I started growing rosemary from seed, and the plant took a while to begin growing.

I kept the rosemary in a container and brought it in during the winter. It got bushier and healthier the next year, to the point that it's now in a large pot. I love my rosemary! I would do yoga next to it each morning and run my hands through its leaves. It created a rich, gorgeous fragrance that helped me to relax and focus.
