Thyme, Thymus serpyllum

Family of labiateae

For people who pay less attention or are not interested, this small plant can easily pass unnoticed, as it is very small. But it is essential to walk on the meadows of Apennines so that we can smell a spiced and intense scent and the sensation of pure air; and if we ask ourselves about this smell we can realise that it comes from the flowers of thyme, whose lilac small flowers and green leaves, if trampled on, exhale their scent.
