Seeds of thymeThese pretty fruits here represented, in the 18. scheme, are nothing else, but nine several seeds of Tyme; they are all of them in differing posture, both as to the eye and the light; not are they all of them exactly of the same shape, there being a great variety both in the bulk and figure of each seed; but they all agreed in this, that being look’d on with a Microscope, they each of them exactly resembled a Lemmon or Orange dry’d; and this both in shape and colour.
