Gardening Tips From Fran
Thymus Alba has a nice growing habit. It can lay flat or it can mogul,which makes it nice around stones or in a fairy garden. I like it because it gives a differnt color that the rest of its brethren. So many thymes boolm somewhere in the pink color scheme. When this one blooms, you have to do a double take to make sure it is a thyme!

These plants will work fine around these spots. However, please keep in mind that many people (and animals) have allergies to bees or fragrances. While the plants may work perfectly in the area that you have determined, blooms may need to be sacrificed, or a different plant may need to be determined in order for the area to be used free of concern.
