Alongside our front steps grows a lavender bush on one side, and a rosemary bush on the other. When Lou asked us to find something green for this week’s Nature in the Home, a fragrant posy suggested itself. Although the two plants look similar, their scents are very different, but nonetheless complementary. Rosemary brings to mind Ophelia, with her “there’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance”, whilst Lavender supposedly symbolises love and devotion. This may not be the prettiest of posies, but it does fill the room with a wonderful aroma.
