A little about Rosemary
Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is a woody, perennial herb with fragrant evergreen needle-like leaves. It is native to the Mediterranean region. It is a member of the mint family Lamiaceae, which also includes many other herbs. Since it is attractive and tolerates some degree of drought, it is also used in landscaping, especially in areas having a Mediterranean climate. It is considered easy to grow for beginner gardeners, and is pest-resistant.
When grown in pots, it is best kept trimmed to stop it getting too straggly and unsightly, when grown in the garden, rosemary can grow quite large and still be attractive. It can be propagated from an existing plant by clipping a shoot 10-15 cm long, stripping a few leaves from the bottom, and planting it directly into soil. -From Wikipedia
I don't have any potted rosemary at present but hope to get some soon, we mainly just use dried rosemary from the store. One of my family's favorite things to do when we make baked chicken is to sprinkle rosemary, and Parmesan cheese on the chicken, with a little butter, before putting it in the oven. It gives the chicken a wonderful flavor! Do you have a favorite recipe that uses this herb? :)
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 5 :14-16
This dip is very easy to mix up, it tastes good with chips or vegtables such as carrot sticks etc. :)
Hello everyone! :) Here are a few pictures of what I've been doing in my spare time the past few days. I have only used oil paints once before, and this picture has quite a bit more detail then my previous attempt so I'll have to see how it goes.
Ready to paint...
I’ve seen the lightning flashing, I’ve heard the thunder roll. I’ve felt sin’s breakers dashing,which almost conquered my soul. I’ve heard the voice of my Savior, bidding me still to fight on. He promised never to leave me,never to leave me alone!
The world’s fierce winds are blowing, temptation sharp and keen. I have a peace in knowingmy Savior stands between—He stands to shield me from danger when my friends are all gone.He promised never to leave me, never to leave me alone!
When in affliction’s valley I tread the road of care, My Savior helps me carry the cross so heavy to bear; Though all around me is darkness, earthly joys all flown; My Savior whispers His promise, never to leave me alone!
He died on Calvary’s mountain, for me they pierced His side. For me He opened that fountain,the crimson, cleansing tide. For me He waiteth in glory, seated upon His throne. He promised never to leave me, never to leave me alone!
