Thyme-fringed pavers

Creeping thyme (Thymus praecox arcticus) grows from 2- to 3-inch gaps between sandstone pavers in this garden in Old Snowmass, Colorado; in summer, it’s covered with small pink flowers. The path, whose pavers are set on a 4-inch layer of compacted sand, leads to a kitchen garden. A standing stone and boulder benches—made of Comanche Moss sandstone and flanking the path—echo the shape of the distant Elk Mountains.
