potting up the herbs-
the scent of rosemary lingers
 my red wooly scarf

  1. I bet your hands smell great too. Will this pot winter in your kitchen? Must be cool if you wearing the red scarf.

  2. I am going to keep in upstairs in my sewing room. The light is great up there, so plants do well. The temperature is going up and down. It still feels like early fall some days. On the day I did the plants, it was chilly.

  3. Hi Sandy,

    Great haiku and Rosemary is one of my favourite herbs - love the smell and in the weekend cooked a roast chicken with Rosemary and thyme and it was so good.
    Hope you are enjoying the weekend
    Hugs

    1. Definitely a favorite of lots of people.
      Have you ever heard of a touch and smell garden? I read about one in India the other day.

    2. I've never heard of them call touch and smell gardens, but yes I have heard of the concept, in fact there are some small gardens of that type in Edinburgh

    1. It is one of my favorite cooking herbs, too. I know that the West coast has milder weather than here, so am wondering if you can grow it outside in the winter where you are?

    2. I'm not much of a gardener Sandy, so I don't really know. But I do know that nothing beats fresh, organic rosemary for adding a punch of flavor.

      I have a recipe in my first cookbook for hummus that contains a generous amount of rosemary. People at book signings alway loved it, when I brought samples. ;-) Have a super week, G

    3. PS: And a wonderful holiday season too. I just posted a Christmas themed post, I'm getting into the holiday spirit. We are in the Yukon right now and it is cold and snowy here. How's your weather?

    1. Thanks, Tammie. This is one of the newer prostrate rosemary plants. They look exceptionally good in pots.

  10. Yes, we can grow rosemary all winter. I have several of the upright variety now in my garden, and look forward to going out to clip some stems to put in my roast lamb at Christmas!

    I love that blue pot of yours. I have one with exactly the same color of glaze, but a bigger pot, and used to have an olive tree in it. Now it holds a hydrangea.

    1. That pot is part of a set of three. I'll bet yours looks good with the hydrangea.

  11. The photo and the haiku - beautiful! And I love your quote above by Lorenna Mc.... I have several of her CD's - and this reminded me that I haven't played them in a long time. Have a great new year ahead.
