Orting Herbs

Bergamot and other herbs thrived in the bright sunshine and sandy soil on the flat peak of the homesite.

Herbs surrounded the house, keeping the sky open to the views. A few steps over the edge took you into deep forest.

The first plantings of the herb garden are shown here from the third floor deck. More than a hundred different types soon filled the spaces.
