This year I planted in my herb garden German thyme. Even though there is snow on the ground and the temp is definitely below freezing it is still fresh and alive. The thyme is planted on the southside of my garage right next to the garage wall. The snow hasn't covered it all and what is not covered is still fresh and alive.
I love the life I live and live the life I love*, and as Mark Twain said, " Always do well it will gratify the few and astonish the rest".
