Bell flower and wild thyme

Previous - Next

Close behind the Bell-flower a spreading sheet of Wild Thyme has crept out of the turf and flowed rather widely over the stone. Luckily I just saved it from the tidying process that threatened it, and as it is now well established over the stone I still have the pleasure of its bright rosy bloom when the duties of the mowing-machine rob me of the other tiny flowers�Hawkweed, Milkwort and Bedstraw�that bloom so bravely in the intervals between its ruthless but indispensable ministrations.
