What a splendid and all-purpose, yet sleeper of an herb is lemon thyme, growing there languidly, flowing unobtrusively, even shyly, over the stone wall toward the ground all unattended, each tiny plump green rounded glossy leaf-edge tinged with yellow like a tiny sunrise over a tiny forest; but what gusto this little spirit brings to any dish! Sprinkle it on toasted cheese! Over soup! Into sauces! A pinch among sauted or steamed mushrooms!! The list could go on, as lemon thyme does, as all great things do.
