So I was coming home from dinner tonight and as I was walking up to the building I noticed that the plants were growing quite well – despite the recent snow… hardy little things.
Yes they are quite bushy indeed. I may have mentioned previously that I recently discovered that not only are these lovely little plants lovely, but they are also useful – they’re rosemary!
So coming home and remembering this and having them look so bushy and ready for a trim I thought I’d just pluck some off to bring back into the house for the next weeks cooking.
As I was plucking though – the whole plant came out of the ground. Well mostly out.. really it was about 45% out and 55% still in… on one side. I didn’t really mean to pull the plant out, I just wanted one little stem.
So, freaking out slightly as the entry door cameras and the security guards inside were no doubt watching this, I surreptitiously tapped my foot on the soiled base and re-planted it, while looking like I’d just picked something up off the ground and was examining it in my hand. Ingenious I know.
Then I proceeded to calmly walk into the building as if nothing had happened. Alas without a stem of rosemary.
