Chapter 7, Page 18, Book 15





Are you going to Scarborough Fair? Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme, Remember me to one who lives there, He once was a true love of mine.

Simon and Garfunkel

July 18 - Thyme to love

In Medieval times, the herbs mentioned in the song represented virtues that were important to the lyrics. Parsley was comfort, sage was strength, rosemary was love, and thyme was courage.

According to the language of herbs, Thyme brings with it the meaning of AFFECTION.

I think that it is truly all about THYME.  Thyme that we take time to love.

As we live in a fast paced world we rarely stop and take a break and do something that we really love. We tend to forget to appreciate, to laugh and to care that we take for granted the many good things we have in life. Don’t let time pass without connecting to your loved ones or to your own self as well.


Make Thyme to Live,
to Laugh
and to Love!

Ah ha, thanks for the education. I didn't realize that about herbs & spices. Very sweet thoughts for today.
And we have a nice day in-store down here.

That was interesting about the herbs in Medieval times; I too learned something new today. It is always good to take thyme to love and to have courage to do so too!

I've enjoyed that song for years, but never considered the meaning behind those herbs.
'Thyme' even LOOKS nicer (when written) than does 'time.'
.....I hope you've started a trend, Ma!

I love that song, Scarborough Fair. It was nice being educated on what each herb represented."Parsley was comfort, sage was strength, rosemary was love, and thyme was courage."
