Hey all,

My English thyme didn't flower this year. Anybody know why that might be?

I'm disappointed, but only for the bees who love it...

My common thyme flowered, but I'm hoping to find time to remove a lot of it this fall. It self-sows with more vigor than I'd like, and is a little too aggressive to be in the mixed beds - it climbs over the lavender and up the stems of taller plants like russian sage. And post-flowering, a lot of the stems have died back, maybe because of the wet weather we've had on the cape this past month. Not a pretty sight at the moment!

The only patches that look really good right now are ones that volunteered in the lawn, where it's been kept short by mowing. Those are a lovely deep glossy green. Maybe I should try mowing my mixed beds, too... but of course then it wouldn't flower ...
