Why You Want to Grow Fresh Rosemary

Several years ago we were visiting friends in Arizona.  Along the backside of their property they had a row of rosemary bushes. They filled the yard with the most beautiful aroma and when our friend headed out to clip a few to add to our grilled dinner, Jim & I knew we needed to add rosemary to our backyard of our newly purchased home. 

We now have three large rosemary bushes in our backyard and they have been the best addition to our yard.
Here is why- 
1. They are beautiful plants especially when they begin to bud. Their tiny flowers are very pretty.
2. They make our backyard smell lovely.
3. They are a natural mosquito repellent. Can't beat that. 
4. We always have fresh rosemary on hand for any recipe we use it a lot when we are cooking poultry or lamb
5. We frequently cut sprigs of rosemary and place them in a vase on our dining room table. It makes the house smell fresh and clean. If you change the water each day they usually last about a week.
