WHITE FLOWER GARDEN INSPIRATION THURSDAY

Every Thursday we like to post a picture of something we've found online that inspires us to do something similar at the farm. Sort of our own blog bulletin board so that we can eventually look back and someday, hopefully anyway, recreate it...enjoy!

We've posted some pics of flower theme gardens but I don't think we've ever seen one in all one color.  This is all white and I think it's also known as a "moon garden" because the white flowers in the moonlight seem to take on a. glow of their own.

I have no idea what the flowers are, certainly not what all of them are but still the idea of putting together one flowerbed or one area with all white could be very pretty!

Be inspired!

  2. Really pretty! And a cooling look in this heat.

    My mom always told me to include some white when planning a flower bed of other colors because it draws the eye.

    1. Ooh I never thought about the "cooling" effect of seeing white color. Great idea and thanks!

  3. I know that the garden in honor of Princess Diana at Kensington Palace has some white flowers that were her favorites, but I don't know if it's all white. A garden with one color would be beautiful.

    Love,

    1. Awww, that's very neat to hear. LOVED Princess Di. Sigh. Such a loss. I bet it's lovely and I seem to recall something about her favorite flower and it was incorporated into the recent wedding. A single color garden is a neat idea. I can imagine all yellow!! Or all red! Or blues and purples. How pretty.

  4. Vita Sackville West created the first white garden (it also had plants with silver and variegated foliage) at her home Sissinghurst. She was quite an interesting person.

  6. I love white gardens. But, I read they were out of date, like I care! Some day, I will have a white garden. Just look for bulbs and seeds that produce white flowers in your area.

    1. ha, I'm with you!! Can a garden really be out of date? If it's pretty and please our eyes, that's all that matters. You do your white garden too!! Don't let anyone tell you different. :-)

  9. Years ago I had one. White moonflowers that climbed an old telephone pole. I believe I'll get some of those seeds next spring.
