Discoveries

I had to crush a leaf a little to make sure: yes, a thyme seedling. From a minute thyme seed, fallen sometime last year, frozen through winter, nourished by rain, germinated and 2 inches high this June.

Sweet surprize. The sniff-test confirmed it as as summer savoury. Grown about 6 feet away last year in a tiny pot, allowed to go to seed, and look. I have summer savoury again. One of my favourite cooking herbs.

And another one, smaller, up amongst the fallen petals.

I also discovered that I can hoover up my rose petals without sucking up gravel. Sweet.
