Good morning all   G'day Pat   and a special Hello to Pdoc ((hugs))   - hope today is better than yesterday and that the problems get sorted soon.

Well, I didn't expect to wake up to blue skies and sunshine   the rain yesterday evening was horrendous - we had to turn the tv up to hear it - but now it's a gorgeous morning and the birds are singing  and the pigeons cooing and the peregrines at Norwich cathedral have four eggs and have started sitting

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
