A fun flower metaphor of thyme. Father Time watches the clock while tending to his thyme. What a unique variation on the concept of father time. Father thyme is pictured with his own scythe and hourglass.
This vintage thyme drawing is from the talented artist Walter Crane (1845-1915). It was included in the book A Floral Fantasy In an Old English Garden published in 1899.
