Properties of rosemary

Did you know that if the herb rosemary grows vigorously in a family garden, it means the woman is the head of the household? Or if you wind sprigs of rosemary in your hair it will help your memory? These are just two of the ancient beliefs about the versatile and fragrant herb.

The folklore, cultivation, medicinal, culinary and other uses of this perennial evergreen shrub will be discused by June Burton at 10 a.m. Friday at a meeting of the Friendly Thyme Herb Club.

The meeting will be at Ferndale-Linthicum Senior Center, 7205 Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd. Burton will have examples of types of rosemary, including those that do well in this area.

Fran Parish, Marian MacCrehan and Marion Paterson on the club's hospitality committee are preparing refreshments seasoned with rosemary. Recipes will be available.
