The Getty Villa's Herb Garden

1 comment
 The Getty Villa Herb Garden was designed  based on the Roman Style. The Romans usually have a herb garden in their Villas because this was a more functional garden for them to use for their meals, beauty, skin care and medicinal purposes. The Herb Garden is located on the other side, parallel to the formal garden. The garden has all the herbs planted that we can ever dream of like the lemon thyme, lavender, radish, violets, rosemary, among other herbs. When visiting the Villa, do not miss stopping by the Herb Garden. When we were there, it was so fragrant and there were butterflies and bees hovering around the herbs. I learnt from Vicki Archer of  the blog French Essence, that "lavender is a natural habitat for bees."  No wonder there were several bees hovering around the lavender flowers.  It is a lovely and functional garden indeed.

That's me!

I hope you enjoyed our tour of the Herb Garden?  It is always a delight to stroll around a well designed garden with fragrant and beautiful plants around.
