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

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).
