Thanks for the tip, Frank. My thyme was doing well, spreading as desired in the hot, dry Kansas summers, then this year we're having monsoon season in place of our normal dry season and my thyme is turning black.

We have a thyme "lawn" patch, watered with a regular pop up sprinkler, and it's looked great for years. It needed more water than we expected in order to look good, but still much less than a grass lawn. No mowing, no fertilizer...love it. So do the native bees.

Our flagstone path is much more inviting with creeping thyme.
