This is actually an old concrete herb marker for "rosemary" -- if you look closely you can read the first four letters. The last four are very faint and have nearly worn away. In this photo, doesn't it look as if she's sprinkling salt on the ground?
Lifelong collector of antiques. Things that interest me: animals, cottage and country life, fine art, architecture, antiquarian books and prints, dogs, natural history and sporting items, gardening, photography, graphic design, humor, quotes, real estate, interior design, renovation, restoration, learning new things, electronics and technology. This blog, established in 2008, reflects my own personal taste and will never bore you. Rosemary Beck
