garden ponderings

Current Whites


I do like the strong contrast of white flowers in a sea of green.
The last rhody blooming here.
Buds are pale pink, but the flowers open to white.

Oh yes, I recognize you as you put out your first flush of flowers.
But, I just can’t place your name!
I know it begins with an ‘a’. . .

Allium flowers pop up in various places of my garden.
Sometimes alone, sometimes in groups, sometimes with friends.

Moss rose can grow to be a good-size bush.
This speciman is presently over-run with daylilies.
I recently lopped four large dead limbs, which left this shrub very sparse-looking.
My work is cut out for me next winter dormant season:
clear out the daylilies, lighten the clay soil
and give a beautiful plant a chance to thrive.
(It sounds almost noble:)

Another variety has magenta flowers – on the other side of the house.
I wonder if the two plants mixed, would light pink flowers result?

Okay, another stock photo.
I am still amazed that three straggly seedlings
could rejuvenate quickly and become a beautiful display.

My calla lilies tend to accumulate visitors and tree droppings.
I had to quit bringing these beauties into the house as cut flowers,
they were bringing too many tag-a-longs.
