Taking the time to take a closer look at thyme

I would love for us to take the time to have a closer look at thyme and its many benefits. I have been using this herb for many years and still am to this day. As a child, my parents loved cooking with thyme.

I watched on many occasions as my father who is now deceased moved about in the kitchen preparing those delicious meals and one of the herbs he always went for was thyme.

Thyme has such a pleasant aroma and I remembered there were times he would be cooking and this wonderful odor would fill our home. Many Bahamian dishes are prepared with this herb especially our famous peas n rice.

Tourists travel from near and far to enjoy our culture along with the beautiful weather and beaches, you guess right also our famous peas n rice that have touched so many hearts as they keep coming back for more.

Hibiscus is great to use as hedges and as a specimen plant which I call a show stopper, in other words, they can really stand out making an amazing impact.

I have worked with these plants on many garden projects and have created such beautiful designs.
