A sprig of over-winter rosemary was home to these three ticks. I saw some on an earlier picking and wonder if ticks are particularly attracted to rosemary or if this is going to be a bad tick season.

If you find any more (alive) - you can put them in a wee jar w some moist paper or cotton ball and bring them to the Cortes Health Centre for testing. They want to see if Lyme is happening this year.
