The Thyme Room

As blue as the magnificent Thyme hills that surround the Blacks Hotel. The Thyme or Time room should I say was great fun to paint and decorate...did you know, Thyme was used for the process of mummification in ancient Egypt. Thyme was the herb that was burned in sickrooms to help stop the spread of disease. During the Middle Ages in Europe Thyme was thought to ward off nightmares if placed under the pillow. It's also a good source of vitamin C. So please feel free to gather some Thyme from the surrounding hills if you feel the need.
