Combine carrots, stock and thyme in a pot. Bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to low and simmer 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Remove from the heat and cool 5 minutes. Transfer the soup in two batches to a blender and pulse until smooth. (Or you may use an immersion blender). Purée soup completely, then stir in honey and cream.
Taste, then add salt and pepper as needed. Stir in a little warm broth if the soup needs thinning.
Serve warm with a few thyme leaves on top.
