This is my first thyme growing thyme. [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin]
I got a small pot of wooly thyme at the end of last summer and planted it by the bathtub pond. I didn't know that thyme has these pretty pink flowers. And it smells sooooo good when you rub your hands over the leaves! [thumb]

Hey wouldn't some of that look great on Fernies stump? That is so pretty. Does it just keep spreading out?

I'm not sure - as I said, "This is my first thyme growing thyme." but I think it does keep going and going like the energizer bunny...

EEEWWWWEEEEEEE...Lynn, Sumpin got it! I think Weezie is right...did a dog go pee pee on it? I think if it would have been hot temps the whole thing would look like that. Bless your heart..but you may have caught it soon enough to pull it out.

well... no fertilizer, no pesticides, no dogs in the backyard - that I know of! - it's on the edge of the bathtub pond, but was doing so well!

Maybe it drowned in the 2 quick heavy downpours we had over the weekend? I cut it back yesterday, so just the upper portion that is going over the rock is left. Keeping my fingers crossed that it revives itself!

I'd say the wetness...
Most herbs like do not like wet feet..
They like hot rocks to rest on..
So, that might have proved the theory of
just putting rocks for a mulch under it...
