White Flower Lodge


DAY



NIGHT

I have always had a preference for white flowers.
Not only do they seem fresh as a daisy....
they are also tres elegant.
White blooms match any other shades in your garden.
They look fabulous with green, especially variegated foliage.
Most of the plants close to our house have white blossoms.
I love how they glow at night.
Seem almost iridescent.

this photo was taken at dinner time,
with very little natural light...
hard to really capture how they,
hate to say it,
'pop'
at dusk.
This sweet double primula is starting to spread
which makes me very happy.

This clematis was one of the first things I planted here
it is intertwined with a white climbing rose called "iceberg"
that is completely trouble free.
I highly recommend this combo to cover a stone wall or fence.

they have very comprehensive online
and hard copy catalogs.
Amazing reference source!
White Flower Farm was where Jeff and I
went on our first date.
Right then and there,
amongst the peonies...,
I knew it was true love
and that there would certainly
be a white dress in my future!


These are the ferns we picked out on our first outing together.
Some divine trilliums.

Great pics of some gorgeous specimens! I particularly love the white Iris in the first photo.
