Thyme and quantity
WHAT: A group of thyme plants
WHERE: my home in South Minneapolis
SO: This is a picture of my thyme patch, which is not a single plant, but many that I planted from seeds. This summer I trimmed them back after they flowered, and they started growing again. An important quantitative element to these plants is the number of leaves that are on it. Since thyme is an herb, a desirable thyme plant would have vigorous leaf growth. You may notice that the plants in the back are taller than those in the front, also a quantitative measure. This is due to the way the sun shines in the window....an environmental influence.
