Thyme Scented Honey

(Summerland, B.C.)

I planted a small thyme lawn several years ago, and finally last year it bloomed. The variety was Elfin thyme which has very pretty pink flowers, and the plants which are only about 1/2 an inch tall were completely covered.

The bees from the neighbors place (who has three hives) came to visit all the time the thyme was blooming, and for Christmas, my lovely friendly neighbor surprised me with a jar of the honey that the bees had made from my Thyme!

I have it every morning on my toast, and in tea. I can't wait for the bees to come visiting again this year - what a deal! Not only do I get a beautiful thyme lawn to look at, but the honey is out of this world!
