A white day

It's bloomin' white around here! Not snow, but flowers!
A yucca type plant

So excited on this one although I'll have to move it later...it is called a waterfall hydrangea since the flowers cascade down

White double petunias with little sprays of white flowers

Don't know the name of this one...if anyone knows?...would love it in the hot pink color!

A white dianthus that came up from scattered seed. Must have been washed away as it is where I would not have planted it, but it's growing!

Ooooh, a magnolia tree

Some blossoms waiting to open

The scent is heavenly like a lemon/lime...just beautiful. Although never touch the flowers as it makes it go from white to brown!!

My hubby's favorite, and a lot of other men say it's their favorite too. The gardenia bushes are coming into bloom by the front porch. Now that's fragrance!

Just a daisy type weed!! With honeybees, if it flowers, it stays!!

Hope you enjoyed my white day!

Hi Ulrike,

I have been so busy lately that I missed your last post. Congratulations to Marnie!! She is a lucky girl!

All those whites in your garden are very pretty. Some flowers are new to me, like that of the Yucca tree and the waterfall hydrangea. Did not know such a plant did exist. Do you know what I like best though.....the daisies :-)!!!

Enjoy your day!

Lieve groet, Madelief

I didn't used to appreciate white flowers much. Lately I've begun to really like them. I just planted a little strip with white cosmos, petunias and dianthus. I'm going to love it when it fills in.

Absolutely lovely! I so enjoy seeing white flowers, and the saucer magnolia is one plant I wished survived our nasty winters. There is nothing like one....and the gardenia too! ♥♥♥

XXOO!!

Our climate makes it almost impossible to grow magnolias, but they have managed it at our zoo... which is my only experience of seeing one! It is quite magnificent. You are very lucky to have one in your garden. Kim :)

Great to follow your garden - see the difference and also what´s equal!;-)
I love white flowers! Espacially late summer nights! They shine so beautiful!!
The plant you want name for is a Lychnis coronaria. I have it in three colors: White, Cerise and one called L. cor. occulata "Angels Blush" wich change between pink when it´s wet in the air to all white when it´s dry.
You can see them all here if you like = Our website with our plantlists- and images of most of the palnts: http://user.tninet.se/~yvn242d/bildsidor/latinal.htm

Hallo Ulrike,
ich liebe weiße Blumen auch sehr, habe leider viel zu wenig davon im Garten...
Manchmal liegt es, glaube ich, auch am Dünger, wenn zum Beispiel Lupinen plötzlich weiß blühen, obwohl sie im letzten Jahr noch rosa waren, it's crazy...

Have a lovely Weekend
Liebe Grüße Traudi

Beautiful flowers, and that magnolia is magnificent. I don't think we can grow them here (zone 5b).

I love white flowers! When I returned last Sat. I was overwhelmed with how the garden had grown and bloomed in my absence - guess it rained almost every day, much to DH's delight as it meant he didn't have to drag those darned hoses around!

Ulrike - every moment of the trip was fabulous - even the 6 hr. layover at Frankfurt was tolerable in the Lufthansa business class lounge! Beautiful Africa was much more than I expected and I already know I must go back, some day!

I'll be posting daily as I have so many great pics and stories to share.
Hugs - Mary
