What plants are these? I love the look
The plants are edible herbs, mostly evergreen in this Pacific NW garden, including trailing Rosemary, thyme, and sage. You can also see a white flowering lavendar and an orange flowering perennial (not edible) in this image...sorry I do not have an ID for the orange flower, but anything with similar
