LOL, Yup, looks like that to me too. The flowering should not really effect the flavor and the bees will love it. http://homecooking.about.com/od/cookingfaqs/f/faqoregano.htm

Since there was oregano thereabouts before you are all probably correct however my oregano both Greek ad Italian have slightly broader less pointed leaves. My marjoram has more elongated leaves like this picture. Only the taste test could tell me properly what the variety is.

Whatever it is, I think it can be cut back quite a bit now to prevent it from flowering again.

Yup, if you cut the tops off it wont flower and will make the plant bushier. But if you want to leave it to flower the bees will be happy you did. Very Happy
