[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Rosemary (Rosemarinus officinalis) grows all over the Mediterranean coast on rocky slopes in poor soil. The shrubs grow to a respectable heights of 6ft or 2m here in the Els Ports mountains. The delicate blue and purple flowers attract bees in spring and fall. In summer rosemary stopps blooming, but in fall after a rain it starts to grow again. The scented leaves are used as a herb in cooking, tastes great with pork or chicken!

Thanks for sharing this nice photo. I have never seen a Rosemary plant. This is why we visit Treknature. Your post was very useful for me.

Hi Marialuisa,
A beautiful flower, and it does add wonderful taste to foods. Great colors, and a great note. Still down in Florida.
