Before we moved to our current house we lived in a neighbourhood where older homes were being replaced by monster homes. My plants, if they bloomed at all, had few flowers and often died after one winter. I thought I lacked a green thumb. Since we moved into this new location everything thrives. This thyme was a small Home Depot six pack but in two seasons it’s crowding out paving stones. It’s amazing what sunshine can do for flowers. I have decided to join them and set up a chair right outside the kitchen door. If sun is so good for plants it probably feeds our bodies and spirits as well.
Thyme has a lot of health benefits as well as being hardy, fragrant and beautiful: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/266016.php
