In a large pot over medium heat, melt 1 1/2 Tbsp of the butter. Add carrots, celery, and onion and saute for 3 - 4 minutes. Add garlic and saute 30 seconds longer.

Stir in chicken broth, potatoes, and thyme and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium, cover with the lid and cook for 15 minutes. Stir in broccoli and cook 5 minutes longer or until veggies are tender.

Meanwhile, melt the remaining 4 Tbsp butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour and cook, whisking constantly for 1 minute. While whisking vigorously, slowly pour in milk (whisk well until no lumps remain).

Cook stirring constantly until mixture begins to thicken, stir in heavy cream. Remove from heat and once all veggies are tender pour into the soup and stir. Remove from heat and stir in cheddar and parmesan cheese until melted. Serve warm.
