Could you list the plants/herbs/flowers in this garden?

The very first plant at the "V" beginning of the path on the right looks like a perennial Lamb's Ear. The plant behind it with lavender flowers spreading out is Cat Mint. Under the first window looks like Russian Sage. On the left side the first few plants I'm unable to see clearly. But you can see a small Rose bush with pale, possibly cream colored flowers. Next to that are tall pink perennials with fern like leaves called Cosmos. Though difficult to clearly see the bright orange flowers may be lilies, possibly tiger lilies. Hope this helps a bit. It's a very pretty flower garden though needs some pruning.

17. Don't think you ever have to have a lawn. Having a garden is much better for the environment than a lawn!
Becky Harris added this to Unexpected Edible Gardens
This front yard in Provincetown, Massachusetts mixes perennials, annuals, cutting flowers, and herbs. I'll take this over a lawn any day!
These kinds of gardens take the kitchen garden from the back patio to the front yard. See more cottage gardens
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Feast Your Eyes on Edible Gardens
A traditional cottage garden blends vegetables and flowers in a riotous mix of colors and textures. They stand in sharp contrast to the simple lines and white siding of the house behind them.
Element: Pilasters. They surround the front door and are the decorative highlight of simple Cape Cod cottages. This white-painted pilaster and lintel combination is most common.How to make it your own: Painting heavy trim surrounding entries white is one way to get a similar effect without calling in a carpenter. Another simple way to highlight the entry is to paint the door itself a bright color.
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Vegetables and Flowers Mix in Beautiful Edible Gardens
The cottage-potage garden. I imagine the historic predecessor of what I call the cottage-potage garden might have looked a bit like this garden, with edibles such as kale (in the foreground), herbs and squash (adjacent to the house) planted here and there alongside scented flowers and ornamentals.
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to Texas Gardener's September Checklist
Clean up your spring and summer garden. That way you'll make room for your cooler-weather plants. • Remove any plant that is dead, including spring and summer annuals, like petunias, impatiens and vincas.• Get rid of your old summer vegetables that are no longer producing, like tomatoes, summer squash and summer greens.• Trim any plant that is still robust but is seeing the effects of the hot summer months.• Add all of this garden debris to your compost pile unless it is disease or pest ridden, then moisten the pile and turn it thoroughly.
Billy Goodnick added this to Give Curb Appeal a Self-Serving Twist
Where space is limited, do away with lawn and create masses of dense shrubs and perennials that greet arriving visitors and say "hello" when you open the door to fetch the morning paper.
Alison Hodgson added this to How to Cultivate a Young Gardener
Front yard or back — plant wherever the sun is, as with this glorious profusion ...
