The basic component is actually lemon thyme (Thymus x citriodorus). It remained much greener through this, its second summer season; and it is gradually coming out of its summer doldrums now.

I like the combination of soft colors with the muted gray-green of the teacup and saucer.
As the thyme formed a tangle of stiff stems, I did not have to use foam or any other additional support for this very casual little posy in a teacup.
Most of my garden time lately has been spent tidying up for the oncoming autumn growing season, and even more has been spent planting irises as both my iris orders came within the same week. It's great to take some time out to bring a little bit of the garden indoors. Thanks to Cathy for the encouragement to do so! Do check the other vases inspired by her IaVoM theme at Rambling in the Garden!
