Rosemary topiaries in training. Learning from the mother plant. 🌱🌱🌱

Newly planted Rosemary root cuttings in old miniature cast iron urns getting some early morning sun on my balcony.

"Summer school in session". That is adorable. Where on earth did you find those charming miniature urns? So perfect for that project. Thinking-ahead Christmas gifts? "rosemary from rosemary". ;-) Just the right size for a kitchen island or counter. You are one clever lady, always thinking. I sometimes wish I lived near you. Your ideas might rub off.

Gail -- I got the tiny urns at a garage sale, where else? I have never seen them anywhere else. They are reproductions, I'm sure but I love them. Yes. They are back in my kitchen right now. The strong morning sun was making them wilt. I will have to baby them for a while until they find their legs. I wasn't able to keep my big rosemary plant alive in the house over the winter but the single sprig that is now a fledgling topiary made it just fine. I take my cuttings from it now. Thanks for your kind words about wanting to be my neighbor!
xo, Rosemary
