I am fond of neat and colourful rock garden plants (many so-called alpines are nothing of the sort and 'rock garden plants' is a conveniently all-embracing term).
The thymes in our front garden are spreading with such enthusiasm that I'll have to deal with them come next muck-spreading but the bees - I counted fourteen of them on a biggish patch recently - are so fond of them that the flowers are safe for the moment.
Thymes have developed to take a dominant position in our front garden.
