Thyme Well Spent...

But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth
bountifully shall reap also bountifully.

2 Corinthians 9:6 KJV



Although the ground is FROZEN outside my doorstep...
& many of you may have snow, for a TRUE gardener,
our 'SOUL' has already been planted in HOPES
of our future gardens.

With the MANY seed catalogs that have filled
my mailbox for weeks now...
I took it upon myself to ponder the day
among these BEAUTIES, along with my journal,
tea & DEAR Sally at my feet!

Reminiscing of this PAST year in the greenhouse...
I happen to remember one of my favorites & MOST popular
annuals that was offered here...
PW Tukana, White Verbena

I HIGHLY recommend adding
 this one to your list, especially for your
containers OR window boxes!

Will be AVAILABLE again come Spring 2013!

Old & New... Mingle Together!




Good Morning... Folks!
I'm DELIGHTED you have chosen to stop in for a visit!

As you ALL may know... I LOVE bringing a little of nature indoor 
whatever season it may be.  For a year now I have gathered FEATHERS 
from where my Guineas have shed them all about the farm, SO 
you KNOW I have one, fine collection!
They have been tucked here & there throughout 
the home, JUST as the vintage, ironstone teapot has been
a dropping spot for when I stroll back in from the afternoon feeding.

It's TRULY amazing... how the SMALLEST of things
bring SUCH delight!


Plain & Simple is what this French-Style, Zinc Planter has
to offer... it TOO has been an holder for
treasured finds here on the farm.
I'm LOVIN' the worn areas where rust is
peaking through... 

It's NOW being offered from my home to YOURS, 
simply click on the link above.

ALL these Old & New... fill my home to MUCH delight,

as for me... I would have it NO other way!
You will find... clusters of Old, Vintage Books on the  mantle, night stands, shelves & all about.  They are ACTUALLY taken aside 
to be read by family, friends & visitors alike, 
they create SUCH the conversation piece! 
I LOVE changing by the COLOR palette of
each books binding... to enhance the season
OR to fit the style! 
The CURRENT liking is to discard the binding, with the pages 
being exposed, tied with twine 
& little pleasure's tucked in!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And among the NEW... 


is this PRECIOUS mug my son gifted me
during Christmas.  With 'chalkboards' being a popular
staple around the home, he thought it was
appropriate, BUT with THESE words... 
there is NO erasing, they're PERMANENT here
& upon my heart!   


And I'm JUST lovin' the little
'X's & O's' he TOOK the time to
circle around the mug!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hoping YOU a Blessed Day
filled with things of 'OLD & NEW'...
mingled among YOU!

Saturday Sweetness...

Have you EVER
engulfed the fragrance
of a Camellia?



Saturday Blooms... with a soft, pale shade of PINK!
Of course, the GLORY is coming from inside the
greenhouse, it's January IN Kentucky & we ARE
speaking of... Camellia's here!
BUT... I have GOOD news for you... GARDENERS!
If you live in an area where temperatures drop -10 (Zone 6)
during the winter, chances are you haven't been able
to enjoy a Camellia in your garden til NOW...
Pictured above... is one of our COLD-HARDY VARIETIES
that we offer here at Beehind Thyme.
Take note... they DO need protection from winter winds &
early morning sun.


I'm ALSO sharing a few inspirational words from
my kitchen to yours... for you to ENGULF on as well!

HAPPY SATURDAY...

Dreaming...


On this cold, winter day there is NO better place
to be other than inside a nice, warm greenhouse...

I'm SO... SO... grateful for what the Lord has
allowed me to do on a daily basis, 
I owe EVERYTHING to Him!

Go ahead & DREAM of warmer days... 
Grab your hot tea & cuddle up with all those
seed catalogs that are spilling out of the
mailbox & DREAM of gardens to be! 

HAPPY GARDENING!
