Oh, such sweet, tiny flowers! I understand it can bloom in different color, possibly indicating the type of soil. Love its fragrance when it is bruised! Kind of makes me think we too should give off a lovely fragrance when bruised.

Well, I have been gardening for 60 years plus and never realised that rosemary produced flowers!

Gorgeous but aren't they in bloom very early?

Clipped Wings said...

Oh! I love to cook with rosemary. Never seen the flowers before...very pretty.

Not surprisingly WAY ahead of any rosemary flowers here. This year will try using a few flowers sprinkled over rhubarb fool/flumery as and when they do appear. It's meant to be a good combination!

I have to admit that, yes, I was surprised to see them at this time of year too. But I don't really remember when they flower normally. Must pay more attention!

I've never seen rosemary bloom. I've heard of it, and I have had rosemary, but I've never seen it bloom. maybe I've been gone every year...? Very beautiful.
