I cut the lavander and the Rosmary early this morning. A lovely aroma is already filling the room.
Rosemary - Ros Marinus - Dew of the Sea
Wild lavender in Alentejo
Lavander flowers .. mine are blooming so nicely after these last rains. They tend to wither in the extreme heat of our summer.
Rosmary. This is a strong hardy plant.. it lives through all seasons.
How perfect this lilac deep blue purple is..ever so delicate.Yet a powerful healer and condiment.
A beautiful bush in my garden.. very wild at the moment.
Lavender. note the little spiky leaves are different than the rosemary bush.
Fields of rosemary and lavender . A typical sight here in the Alentejo.
