One Tough Thyme

I decided to make a pot roast this afternoon. Usually I make it with the fresh thyme that grows in my little herb/weed patch, but it's buried under a foot or more of snow.
But the Thyme, Rosemary & Sage have survived so far this winter, so I thought I would dig down to see if it was still okay in there. I brushed off a foot of snow and hit a solid cap of ice, so I fetched a screw driver to break the ice.
I wasn't sure exactly where the Thyme was so I just started cracking the ice and then I smelled Thyme, so I knew I was in the right place. Under snow and ice there it was:

Fresh, beautiful and green and smelling like dinner

Into the stew pot with you....
