Are You Going to Scarborough Fair?

Anyone seen rosemary and thyme?

Anyone seen rosemary and thyme?

Depending on how my imagination hits me, I alternate between smelling and tasting these herbs. But every time I see one of these pepper grinders I start humming or singing the old Simon and Garfunkel song.

Having gotten the first two done, I am anxious to finish the others. Rosemary is waiting for an oil finish. Thyme has been turned and is curing; it was turned from green wood. I am waiting for it to stop moving before doing the pyrography.

Speaking of thyme, it is time for me to start singing. Nothing clears the shop faster.
