Whoa! There must be an interesting story there. For those who read Susan Witting Albert's herb-based books, this would be a natural. Perhaps there should have been a small sign planted over him stating:

'It's About Thyme'.....

No disrespect meant to the deceased.......
I could be wrong...
and.....
"maybe I should have kept my mouth shut....."

my favorite made up one is>>>OH... no... not another plant...
yes..I didn't tell the story/reason... it's much too sad...
the resulting tactic was way to humorous not to post ...
I hadn't heard of her recent conviction .. obviously a person with particular ideas as to what she should have to give and take..

Something for men to watch out for if they see their wives doing a little more digging in the garden than is normal....and she says, "Oh, I'm just 'double-digging'."

I'm thinking she read one too many of Susans' books... and yes, I agree ~ some things are better left unknown!
