Rosemary

Rosemary is an aromatic plant often used to cook but which can also be used as a medicine. I didn’t know it had medicinal virtues so during the visit of the garden I discovered its  “hidden talent”. Actually, I chose Rosemary because I really appreciate its taste and I sometimes use some for cooking. Moreover, I think Rosemary looks really nice, I like the lovely violet flowers.

From Matthieu: I’ve taken this picture of chartreuse because I’m fascinated in the alcohol created with herbs.

Parched from the sun and the willow fluff blowing around, Speaking Near and Far folks had an aromatic herb syrup taste test for the participants and the audience. Trying to recognize the subtle perfumes of rosemary, thyme, lemon balm and mint tickling our tongues, was a great game for a sunny afternoon.
