Melt butter and add flour to pot over medium heat. Stir constantly until a nutty aroma is noticeable, about 5 minutes.
 With a whisk, stir in chicken stock a little at a time. Whisk in milk in a slow stream. Return vegetables to pot, add corn, thyme, oregano, bay leaf and potatoes and bring up to a simmer. Cover and simmer soup until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Add bacon and season to taste. Remove bay leaf before serving.
