Thyme - in the garden

Thyme is a favorite little herb. We love to add it to vegetables and to chicken dishes. It comes in upright varieties pictured here. They never get much taller then 12 inches and will bloom in soft white and pink colors. It will gently spill over the edge of the bed.

 Creeping Thyme stays quite small and will grow in cracks and crevices.  It will tolerate light walking and so it is perfect between steeping stones.  In the garden bed creeping thyme is a favorite of the garden fairies as they enjoy nestling in for a nap on a bed of thyme.

I love thyme in the garden. Cute thyme out chair. We have a bit of creeping thyme, but the weeds get mixed up with it and then it gets pulled.
