Winter Blossoms

The rosemary plant in one of our east-facing windows has been blooming now for several weeks. The lovely pale blue flowers are, like rosemary leaves, beautifully fragrant when crushed. They're edible, and are said to make a soothing bath infusion. This is the first winter in which we've been successful in keeping our rosemary plant alive. We bought it early last spring at the annual Prairie Creek Community School plant sale on Bridge Square.

Beautiful! My rosemary is always an annual - I can't get it to overwinter here. Will you replant it outside when the weather warms up? And, if you do, do you think it could grow enough to be winter hardy next year?
