I noticed this little rockery at the Uppsala Botanical Gardens the other day.

It is garden art! At the same time it serves as a substrate for alpine plants. Not many yet tho.

Creeping thyme flowing over the rockery.

This variety (Thymus sarpyllum) can be used in medicine and cooking along with the common thyme (T. vulgaris) which we also have growing semi-wild in many places in the garden.

One of our favorite uses for the fresh or dried leaves is to brew a very tasty tea. Not only is it tasty but also has health related activity. Check out thymol in Wikipedia.
