For me, the pleasures of white in one's garden are endless.
A white garden dances in daylight
and shimmers in the moonlight.
My garden is not without color, but it's the whites that provide the magical splendor that keep me adding more.

  4. Hello Sarah,
    beautiful post! I love white in the garden especially for darker corners or in front of darkleaved shrubs and trees. Gives always a little more light. The white blossoms show so much their structure and delicacy. They look shimmering like satin or silk.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  9. Sarah, I am sooo loving your white in the garden. White flowers have long been my favorite mixed with green . I love the coolness of white and green. Wondering.. what is the flower with the caption "tranquil"? Great photos and plants.

  11. Sarah, White in the garden is breathtaking, the pure non color of white against the garden greens, the contrast, always amazing. I've always gone for the color, but lately I have found myself adding more white. Thanks for sharing your amazing garden.
    Hope your day is fabulous......

  23. Gorgeous!!! I wish I was a gardener. But I hate to have dirty hands. I get my hubby to do all the dirty work out in the yard. But I do love flowers, I just don't have many in my yard.

  24. Beautiful, I love a white garden. What a magnificent array of flowers! It must look wonderful!
    One of the clematis I planted last year had a big fat white bloom! I was so happy. You never know with them, sometimes they don't make it through the winter!

  31. White flowers are, by far, my favorite.
    These are so so lovely.
    I just today bought 3 pots of white flowers to plant. The names I can;t think of right now (I am so not a gardener) but they are shade lovers. I have a small little flower garden close to our big pecan tree that stays in shade most of the day. I am trying to add more and more whites.:)
    Oh, and I have 2 more little cupcakes if you want to stop by for a snack. :)))

  37. I can’t believe another week has gone by with another delightful tea party. Your vignette was over the top! Love these white flowers, too. They would look wonderful on a tea table if one dared to pick them.

    It would not be so enjoyable without you and your creative touch. I always look forward to seeing you as often as you can pop in.

    Blessings,
    Pam

  47. Oh I so love your whites Sarah! They are so soothing~ Our lake yard is small, so white blooms keep it from looking so chaotic. Have you ever planted moon vine? I used to plant some from seed & enjoy watching them creep up a trellis and enjoy the show as they opened :-)
