All things white…. are BRIGHT!








Just because you have a white house doesn’t mean you can’t use white flowers.  I love to add touches of white, it is clean and crisp and perfect with all the dark foliage I tend to use.  It seems this time of year it really stands out how much light blooms I have, but a few weeks from now the darker, vibrant things will be blooming.  I added this last picture to show my variegated foliaged plantings.  I love to find things with interesting leaves.  They have so much more interest even when they are not in bloom.  I’ll take a sprinkle of white in every corner of my garden!

Thanks so much for stopping by and….

Happy Gardening….Brooke

  1. I've been admiring your garden for some time now - it's just beautiful! I agree with you about the white too, it contrasts with the greens and makes everything stand out!

  2. I love the white flowers with your white house. Nice photos!


Wonderful to hear from you and taking the time to visit. Come back soon and let me know how I can visit you online as well. I love to meet new gardeners!
