Well, red thyme will spread to look like this


 but it can be a bit fussy about its growing conditions. 

Has your OH seen any pictures of something she likes ... that might be the best way to start .... if we leave it totally to a non-gardener's imagination she might conjure up something that doesn't exist

'Flitter arias'......

Posted: 26/03/2016 at 18:28

David  -  he did pronounce the 'aria' part as in 'bar' - but that was how my Latin teacher taught me to pronounce it too (as you probably know Latin pronunciation can be contentious). I mean, that is how you pronounce 'aria' isn't it?

 However, he didn't say Flitter - honestly he didn't - not on my telly

David - are you just being mischievous 'cos you can't get out into the garden, or have you forgotten to get your hearing aid adjusted?

If Mr D's plant pronunciation was as good as my hearing he wouldn't have said, 'Flitter arias'.

I've played it over and over - he didn't - not on our new telly anyway

 One of Norman Foster's first major buildings, started in 1970 - it was given Grade 1 Listed status in 1991.  Love it   There's a swimming pool on the top there too (sadly decommissioned at the moment).  

Trench Celery

I've never grown it NGL, although I do love 'proper' celery - but as we're pretty close to the Fens we do get it from there - great to drive past and see the fields of black soil and the green tops of celery. 

Good luck!  Let us know how it goes
