Winter White Garden Urns

I’ve been trying a mixture of annuals and perennials in my urns in the white garden, but it seems the only way to have something growing in them year-round is to do annuals, as even my perennials have died. The pots by the front door are particularly challenging; they are in full shade all day…

The White Garden in March

   My white garden is in bloom. I recently decided to change the flowers out in the urn. I had paperwhites planted there, but once they are done, the leaves are not as interesting as a focal point. I decided to dig them all out after they were done blooming, and move them to a…

Winter White Garden and Our Front Entry

The white in our white garden in winter is from the flowers, and not from snow.  This week I added a few things to the garden; namely, some beautiful Noble fir and Douglas fir branches that I got for free from the nursery, that were cut from the bottom of fresh Christmas trees. I added…

Garden Progress & This Week’s Goals

Larkspur. These reseed themselves in the garden every year.   I tried last week for a shortened to-do list for the week, and still, it didn’t happen. It reminded me of this quote from C.S. Lewis. Interestingly enough, my children picked this video to watch on Sunday, which was a great thing for me to see in…

Thoughts on the Garden and My Goals for This Week

  My first peony!  I’ve seen Claus Darby’s name on several of the photos I’ve pinned on Pinterest before, but it wasn’t until Friday that I started reading his blog, inspired by the photo I saw on Pinterest of his sunken white garden. The more I read, the more I realize how much my white…

Green in the White Garden

  The white garden is very green right now. In a few days it will be full of flowers;  even as I write this, several tulips have opened, and there are roses that will open within the week. Here are some scenes from the garden from a couple of days ago: The Katy apricot tree…

White Garden Seed Giveaway

  Note: This is not a sponsored post. I was not paid for my opinions. I really like this company and recommend them based on my own experience with them. Last year, while searching for white foxglove seed for my white garden, I came across a company called Outside Pride that carried it for a…

The White Garden in April

      A year ago in April, I was so excited to finally landscape the front yard. We were in the planning stages then. I was particularly anxious, because it looked like this: A year later, it looks like this: The amazing thing is, the changes I made resulted in a lusher garden–that uses…

Tulips in the White Garden

The tulips are up in the white garden. They bloomed just in time for the garden tour last Saturday.       The tulips take all the attention, but the edibles are thriving in the white garden too. If you didn’t notice them in the first picture, you’re not alone. My garden tour attendees didn’t…

White Garden Reveal

Here’s a reminder of how it looked before (for the last seven years, and the three years before we owned it): And now, right before sunrise: Can you see the edible plants? No? Good. Most of my neighbors don’t, either. I’ll point them out in more pictures. Another great change is that we went from one…
