Summer in the Scottish Highlands and I often find my paws padding over a soft carpet of wild thyme. A pretty plant, I'm sure you'll agree. Only problem is, the sight of the little purple blooms triggers in Gail an urge to
sing massacre a favourite and lovely traditional song.
You will be most relieved not to have to hear Gail's tuneless warbling, and instead I commend to you this version of 'Wild Mountain Thyme', sensitively performed by Dick Gaughan and friends.
We're delighted to be joining Arty, Jakey and Rosy's Nature Friday bloghop once again. Do visit the other posts and enjoy!
that is such a sweet song... and the wild thyme deserved such a beautiful song... and that's what I love about your country... that are songs about the place you love and not just about a new car and gangstas and whatnot...8 paws from us!!!ReplyDelete
never knew the name of that song! Thanks. Love your title too. The Wild thyme does look beautiful...though you set it off nicely.ReplyDelete
Ohhh my word, Bertie lad, this is one my father's favourite songs that he would sing to us as a lullaby when we were just pups!!! thank you for such fond memories triggered and I am certainly I can smell the thyme you have pressed with your darling pawses... hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
Love the scent of Thyme and what a beautiful song!ReplyDelete
Momma always sings about parsley, sage, and rosemary along with the thyme. I likes your song!ReplyDelete
Oh yes, I've heard Gail 'singing' that one too!Delete
You sure look happy sitting among the thyme Bertie. That was a lovely song too.ReplyDelete
Bertie inquiring minds (mine) want to know if your WFT paws smell of thyme when you tiptoe thru the thyme? The thyme flower is lovely and please tell Gail I appreciate that she shared this song as I have never heard it until today.ReplyDelete
Sorry to disappoint you, but the truth is that our wild thyme here has only a faint (though still lovely) aroma.Delete
Such a pretty song Bertie and those sure are beautimous purple thyme flowers!ReplyDelete

Our mom really liked that song and was wondering if Gail knows how to play the guitar? Me and Stanley would like to hear Gail sing. Moms always sing the best, even when they don't. BTW, we are leaving on vacation in the borning to go to a place where mom and dad can ride their bikes. Me and Stanley will get stuck in the wheelie house but other times we get to go hiking.ReplyDelete

Hilda especially loved the song. She tilted her head back and forth as she listened intentlyReplyDelete

That IS a lovely song. Mom says she could listen to it over and over. Now we did not know that thyme was such a pretty flower, and not just an herb.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing.

Oh we bet your wild thyme is beautiful, Mom had some in the herb bed one year and it was gorgeous and smelled good to.ReplyDelete

My mom wants to know if your paws smell of thyme after your walk! Which would be lovely I think!ReplyDelete
Sadly the thyme on our hills has only a very faint aroma.Delete
