Sometimes I just ignore the weeds and work,
and busy myself with a little fun project.
The Thyme that creeps around the edges of the garden is thick, lush and just starting to flower.
A good time to give it a little trim.
This is beneficial for the Thyme and gives me the opportunity to make a little Herb Wreath to hang in the kitchen
Gather little bundles of Thyme and tie with a piece of jute.
Tie the bundles onto the wire and knot tightly in the back of the wreath.
Tuck each new bundle into the previous bundle and continue around the wreath.
Tuck the Thyme in tightly, when it dries it will shrink down and you do not want the wire frame to show.
You can enjoy the wreath right away, snipping fresh Thyme for cooking.
If you would like to dry it, just hang it in a dry, cool location.

I love your photo compositions! The thyme and the peeling paint of the wood look lovely
Thank you so much!, and thank you for stopping by the garden!
Even your workbench is charming! Your everyday fun is such a country treat. Downright adorable!
I love that darn old table too, it gets used around here–a lot!
It was a fun little end of the day project, that I had pondered since the morning!
So glad you enjoyed it.
I love to open your blog each day it give me a morning smile and a calm start to the day. Thank you
Thank you Judy, I do enjoy the creative outlet of this blog–and to know people enjoy it is just pure bonus!
See you soon!
I love this so much!
So glad to share it with you! 🙂
Love this wreath…I’m going to have to make myself one. Love your photos…but you already know that. 😉
It is drying and smelling just wonderful in my kitchen–:) Have fun making one!
Hugs garden friend,
I love this. I have so much thyme in the garden. This is perfect.
A perfect use for that abundant Thyme!
I can’t even see where I trimmed it, it’s growing so fast!
This is lovely and useful at the same time. I will have to gather some thyme for my own wreath.
I knew you would love the use of old wire! Found miles of old wire in our woods from years of farmers leaving it coiled by trees. Have fun making one!
Such a great idea!
Thank you! , and so glad you popped by the garden!
Ooh, wish I had enough thyme to make one of these. Alas, my planter of herbs is not growing well and fast enough by any means. It’s beautiful and I can imagine the wonderful scent filling your kitchen.
I love this idea! And may I say a beautiful blog too, I love your photos. I’m looking to create a herb garden on our allotment this year and it will be great to be able to store the herbs in our kitchen at home like this. So decorative and pretty 😀
