Garden Whites

My poor garden has been neglected.

I have not had/taken time to water nor have we had much rain.

I have been giving the plants with the spent flowers a haircut and now my garden is at the ugly grow out stage.

Funny though, the colors on the plants and bushes that always seem to be in bloom throughout the seasons.

Can you guess?

Did you say WHITE?

I am so happy to have the privilege to join Kathleen from Faded Charm and all the other wonderful bloggers for WHITE WEDNESDAY!
Oh yeah, I'm back.

Then you would be right.

My white hydrangeas are in bloom.

They are so hardy.
I have brought some in the house, I love how they look in the ironstone pitchers.

Rose of Sharon.

Cone flower.

More fluffy hydrangeas.

I think this little garden might be my favorite.
I packed a lot in there.  Pea gee hydrangea, 2 white chairs with mixed white flowers, phlox and another white flowering plant that I am not sure of the name.

I just love how these urns turned out. 
 I will definitely try this plant combination out again next year.

So, I haven't exactly managed to kill off all of my plants this year.
BUT, thinking like a gardener, it just gives me reason to plant some new plants in the fall and spring.

How about you?
Any WHITES in your garden?

Thanks for visiting, I hope you didn't trip on any weed piles while you were here.
Make sure to stop by and visit Kathleen.
