Rosemary Finds a New Home

I overwintered my rosemary plant which seemed to work out quite well this year. But now that it’s mid-March, the piney little leaves are afflicted with powdery mildew. So I’ve decided to put it back outside. It’s supposed to be relatively nice (temperature-wise) for the next couple of days with temps barely reaching freezing at night. I haven’t checked the hardiness of rosemary, but I recall seeing it in Italy covered with snow, so I’m assuming it will be fine. I should probably harden it off, but I just want it out of the porch - so on the front stoop it goes. Hopefully it doesn’t get a nasty sunburn on it’s first day back outside.
