Weed or Herb

SE Houston (Hobby), TX(Zone 9a)

Last year I dug up several herbs from a restaurant that was getting rid of their herb garden. I put them in containers.

There was rosemary, thyme, oregano, and some others I wasn't familiar with. Problem is, I'm still learning herbs and not quite sure what this is.

Can you help me identify if I'm growing a weed or an herb here? I kinda think it might be a variety of Thyme.

Hey, Gymgirl!
I think you're growing a weed. Especially since no one has identified it as an herb they recognize.

I don't know what it's called but I also have this weed in my yard. It does resemble and grow like thyme, but it's not.

Ok, weeds smell horrid. If it is an herb there will be a pleasant smell. I don't recognize what you have, not unusual as I have favorites, chuckl. Reminds me of simething, but dont remember what.
