Rosemary, the Herb of Remembrance

As for rosemary, I let it run all over my garden walls, not
only because my bees love it but because it is the herb
sacred to remembrance and to friendship, whence a
sprig of it hath a dumb language.”
–  Sir Thomas Moore

The bees are having a grand time in the rosemary today.  It is one of my favorite herbs, too.
I'll be gathering sprigs of rosemary on Thanksgiving day, both to flavor the turkey and to grace the table.  Rosemary is lovely in a bouquet, and makes a pretty, fragrant napkin ring when tied with a bit of twine or ribbon.  What better time than Thanksgiving to find all sorts of ways to incorporate the 'herb of remembrance'?

How will you use rosemary in your home this season?

  1. I love the smell of Rosemary on my hands but it is also good on roasted potatoes.


Thanks for joining the conversation!
