CMMC: April Close Up

With sunshine and temperature on the rise over the next few days, my motivation to take photos is back on. I took these photos yesterday for the purpose of this post. The first photo is a sideview of one of the leaves on my yarrow plant. It feels different when you touch it than the way it looks under a 10-time magnification lens filter. It even looks different when you look at it with naked eyes.

This is the top view of the leaf. As I mentioned before, the leaf looks different when you look at it with just your eyes. Each of those leaflets overlaps each other, so if you look at it sideways, it almost looks three dimensional.

Here is my final image.

This is my 4th attempt at growing rosemary, the first being in 2020. Each year, I managed to kill it, even when I kept it indoors. This year, I’m following all the suggestions I can find on the internet about raising rosemary – does well in a clay pot, thrive on neglect, and likes dry, well-draining soil. It’s been about 2 months, let’s hope I can keep it alive long enough to finally have some harvest because I absolutely love the smell of rosemary.

    1. I love the smell of rosemary, especially in bread.
      Unfortunately, it killed some of the seedlings when it dropped down to the teens-Fahrenheit a few nights ago. So I’ll be spending the weekend replanting those.

  1. I have rosemary growing in mostly sea sand type soil in my garden. I rent the property now but I am not a gardener and it grows wild enough to require cutting back when our gardener does the hedge. In a pot here where I live now it’s in potting soil and it’s spikey.

    1. Rosemary isn’t wild here and it can’t survive my winter so I either have to plant it every year or make it an indoor plant. I’m keeping it in a very loose mix so it doesn’t sit in water.

  2. It’s not wild as such, but it grows abundantly in the cape where we get winter rain. In the pot it’s more spikey than dense like in the garden. I just noticed, but I’m feeding it now so we shall see if that makes a difference.
