Mystery plant growing among strawberries

Nigel, google "majoram in the kitchen", you'll get lots of ideas.

Plant ID please

The "branch" which is flowering now won't flower again, but it will grow one or two new ones from the bottom which will flower next year. Cut off that branch at the base once it has finished flowering. Here some info on how to move it.
