In honour of the snow storm that didn’t happen this week, today we celebrate the colour white in the garden.
Did you know that in general white and pale flowers are more strongly scented than their darker counterparts? I guess that is why I so enjoy the white apple blossoms, white lilacs and most especially the white blooms of our Hawthorn Grove every spring. White is abundant in my garden in spring and again when the hydrangeas first bloom, before they take on their pinker hues. I wonder however if I should add a moon garden — something I can see from our bedroom patio perhaps? Yes, there is always something to ponder when gardening.
