Bressingham Thyme is one longest blooming thymes in my garden. It started in May and is still blooming This carpet is under the corner arbor. Bees of all kinds work over the flowers. I try to stay on the stepping stones, less I hurt one of them. The lavender thyme is starting on this pathway. I grow strawberries in the bed to the right of the path. Today Ted and I ate our first strawberries.
Lemon thyme – this smells like a lemon merigue pie. I like to use this thyme in tuna salad, along with garden chives and parsley. This path has wooly thyme. Valerian to the left. Potatoes to the right and the wooded box in the back is my potato growing bin. You keep adding height with wooden planks and top with straw or compost. This the first time I have tried this so I will let you know how it goes. Spicy Orange Thymus from Stepables. This thyme is a little taller than the others. The scent is amazing. To me it spicy, orange and almost rose-like. I am moving it around here and there. I love the surprise of suddenly smelling it’s fragrance, before I am aware of its presence. Bressingham thyme. By now you know I love left over cement. This I made with some leftover material and seashells.
Our weather has been colder and wetter than normal. Today we were in the 80’s but, this evening we have a tornado watch and we just had hail from pea to golf ball size. Fortunately, a friend who lives out of town, called me and warned me of the hail coming my way. I was able to cover the tomatoes, potatoes and peppers. The storm did not last long. I think it will be ok.
