Flowers of winter: rosemary, rue,

The Winter’s Tale, [4.4.70-78]. Perdita. “Sir, welcome./ It is my father’s will I should take on me/ The hostess-ship o’ th’ day. You’re welcome, sir./ Give me those flow’rs there, Dorcas. Reverend sirs,/ For you there’s rosemary and rue; these keep/ Seeming and savor all the winter long./ Grace and remebrance be to your both,/ And welcome to our shearing.” Polixenes. “Sheperdess–/ A fair one are you –well fit our ages/ With flow’rs of winter.”
