Elegant White Flowers

“Why try to explain miracles to your kids when you can just have them plant a garden.”
- Robert Brault -

White in the garden is one of the most elegant shades. This is the lovely Acea rosea ‘Chaters Double Mix’.


  1. So glad to have found your blog with it's delightful pictures and inspirational thoughts. I found you through your comments on She Who Seeks

  2. Love white flowers in the garden.
    There is a famous garden in England that only has white flowers, would love to see it one day...

  3. Vita Sackville-West created the White Garden, one of many at Sissinghurst Castle, in Kent. I just looked it up and it is one of the most visited gardens in England, but I couldn't remember the name of it!

  4. I love white in a garden, it is so elegant. It's warming up here!! We went from -28 to 0 in the span of two days... crazy!

  5. @Johnina: Thank you! And welcome... I hope to see you around here often.


    @Kay: A garden with only white flowers? Wow. That must be pretty amazing. I'll look it up on the internet. Thanks for the info.


    @Jane: I love white flowers. They do have a simple elegance to them. Your weather is as weird as ours. I hope our spring isn't as unstable.

  6. One of my favourite flowers! The 'Hollyhock' is such an old flower and was a staple in most gardens.
    These are BEAUTIFUL! What a tease you are showing these in mid winter! lol

  7. @Jim: I love these plants, and I enjoy the flowers as much as I can, because they're short-lived in my backyard; unfortunately, the rabbits eat them.
