Fresh thyme?

I have a small herb garden which I regularly use in cooking. All of my English thyme is blooming now, and I don't know what to do about the small pink flowers atop almost all of the branches. Are they edible? Do they affect the taste of the herb if I leave them on. It would be quite a pain to separate the flowers from the thyme leaves, so I'm tempted to just ignore them. Is that ok?
