White Flowers

There are a variety of white flowers,
all blooming at the same time, now!

Sweet woodruff is still blooming.

Dutch Iris in above photo,
also, comes in yellow and purple.
Below are ‘bearded’ iris,
which come in a rainbow of solid
or 2- or 3-color blossoms.
Both types of iris seem to be deer-resistant.
Very few plants are truly deer-proof.
When deer get hungry enough,
they eat almost any plant.

This is the first year my snowball bush has flowered.
I wanted one of these beautiful plants for so long!
The blossoms started out green
before slowly turning white.

First Calla lily bloom.
The plant struggled this year,
as the mild winter gave rise to early leafing out.
Then a later snow
knocked the new growth back to nothing.

Lilacs and strawberries have both
been blooming for awhile.
The lilacs are fading,
but strawberries will go longer.
Cultivated ever-bearing strawberries bloom until frost.

  1. Beautiful pictures! There is something glorious about all these white flowers ☺️

  2. You picture them pretty well too and on their own they seem to shine more that if they were surrounded with multiple other colours.
    Not sure I’ll ever make it to US to see the white flower farm. I’m in Europe ☺️
