|This photo is Mother of Thyme growing on the sandy soil of our "Pet Cemetery". This is the place where we inter our deceased pets. Mother of Thyme seems to be an appropriate addition to the front of the grave site with dwarf irises, geraniums and daylilies toward the back. Thyme covers two thirds of the photo in front of each burial site.
I hasten to add that Mother of Thyme (Thymus serpyllum) is not a hybrid cultivar, and it is not one of the culinary types used as herbs. It is a wild, native species of northern Europe. It naturalizes in poor, sandy, gritty, well drained soil. I find it easily withstands our bitter winters here in zones 5a/b. A magnet for bees and butterflies.
