Watching a bee busy at work on this flowering Thyme plant at the La Source Parfumee Gardens in Gourdon, France is an intriguing way to spend some time. As soon as the Thyme plant begins to blossom, the bee heads directly towards the flowers to start on his busy day.

The Thyme plant grows to its maximum potential in well-drained soil and the direct heat of the sun. The vast amount of sunlight in Gourdon, France is one reason this particular herb plant flourishes at the La Source Parfumee gardens amongst many other culinary herb plants.
