Thyme On My Hands

By chase
One more from yesterdays' session with Thyme (time Smile ) before I cooked it with some roast spuds and Rosemary...yum.

Lit by daylight camera left.
Raw file converted in Lightroom and finished with a tidy up crop, levels and lots of faffing ( just for Malc Tongue ) in Photoshop.
3 textures added to this one using different blending modes.
The Ladybug is real, she decided to visit with the Thyme.

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.
Please stay safe and well everyone.
Janet xx

The ghostly dove is intriguing. Together with the theme of time it reminded me of the Venerable Bede's story of St Paulinus's sermon.

'When we compare the present life of man on earth with that time of which we have no knowledge, it seems to me like the swift flight of a single sparrow through the banqueting-hall where you are sitting at dinner on a winterís day with your thanes and counsellors. In the midst there is a comforting fire to warm the hall; outside the storms of winter rain or snow are raging. This sparrow flies swiftly in through one door of the hall, and out through another. While he is inside, he is safe from the winter storms; but after a moment of comfort, he vanishes from sight into the wintry world from which he came. Even so, man appears on earth for a little while...'

What a lovely appropriate quote from Moira.
Despite our lockdown, I find time flying as fast as ever.
Glad the thyme was put to good use.
