though the thyme leaves seemed dreamlike on account of that frosting

i am sick. so so sick. haven’t been so sick since elementary school. i’ve been to the doctor, gotten awful though helpful antibiotics, and all that’s left now is to keep warm, drink tons of tea, and wait. 

the morning frost crystallized the herb garden.

Thyme has a long history of use in natural medicine in connection with chest and respiratory problems including coughs, bronchitis, and chest congestion. 

It’s anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, kills staph infections, strep throat, e.coli and more. See also, basil.

herbs glorious herbs.
