White Wednesday...in the garden...

'Alaska' Shasta daisy (above) Ashleaf spirea (below)
'White Swan' echinacea


Sweet Alysum



'Annabelle' hydrangea



Sweet little sweet pea





my willow furniture at pasture fence







'Henryi' clematis


'Galahad' delphinium



I love this chippy aluminum chair used as a plant support



foxglove



climbing 'White Dawn' rose



My sweet iron angel statue in the garden for summer



Another 'White Wednesday' is here and I decided to head out to the garden for today's post. These whites are all blooming now in the garden. I had more, but decided to wait for another day, lest I should bore you. I love white blooms. They have a way of stealing the show. I especially love gardens with dedicated 'white garden rooms'. Someday I would love to create that here in my own garden. They are so serene and calming and are wonderful by moonlight. I think that would be a great project to start on right away. Why wait for tomorrow when I could be planting today. I guess I'm off to the nursery!
Don't forget to go to Kathleen's at Faded Charm Cottage and enjoy the whites that others are showing off today.

Oh Junebug, this one is my favorite. Anything earthy, outdoors under the sun moon and stars beats everything inside. And you just mowed too... fantastic!! I love whites in gardens too. Is it just me or do white flowers generally last longer... or so it seems.
Blessings to you as always.

Hi June,
Your beautiful garden has inspired me to get out and start planting. I love the Annabelle white hydragea. Absolutely beautiful. Your sweet iron angel statue is my favorite. Have a good evening.

Hi June,
I find myself really looking forward to your white Wednesday post. Today's was just stunning. I am amazed at how your flowers still look so pretty and fresh. The heat here is really taxing my poor attempts at gardening.
So I enjoyed everything you showed me today.
Hugs

Such gorgeous whites ~ love the chippy plant support & beautiful garden angel ♥

The Pink Birdhouse said...

June, not sure which flower I love best. Every time I think I have found the picture that just captures my heart, I scroll down and find one even better! The white rose is up there on the list though as are those shasta daisies, they are just too nice. But that swan euchinea wins it simply for the name!! How enchanting. Your garden must be fan-tabulous (how is that for a word!!). Your photos are even better, you sure do have a knack with your camera. hugs, Debby

The Pink Birdhouse said...

oops, really spelled that word wrong didn't I? "swan Echinacea" I mean. :-)

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

June, your white Wednesday is just breathtaking! I love the Foxgloves...they bloom alot longer in Idaho than in here in my garden in Utah...I look forward to every Wednesday now to see what lovely "whites" you display...

Rebecca from A Gathering Place said...

JunieGirl...I long to have a garden like yours. It is so lovely. God inspired. "Consider the Lilies they don't plant, nor sow, but they're fed by the Master who watches them grow..."

I love everything about your flowers...and the pasture...and the gardens...and the beauty.

Love, Rebecca

Peonies & Magnolias said...

Your white flowers are gorgeous along with the wicker and chair.

Paula said...

Oh sweet June,
Your garden is simply amazingly beautiful!!!! I love all of your white flowers. I will have to copy those down, so I can create a white garden, too! I agree, it would be lovely at moonlight. I remember, years ago my husband drove us through a very old neighborhood and when we turned the corner we saw a beautiful sight... moonflowers all aglow in the moonlight. The blooms were as big as saucers!

Do post more photos of your white flowers, you could never bore us! I love your sweet angel in the garden. You live in such a beautiful place, June! Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos! I love white, too!

Have a blessed day!
Love, Paula

Lori said...

what pretty whites June...i really like the chippy white on the chair and your angel...

oldgreymare said...

June,

I finally have a minute to tell you how envious I am of your gardens and your green thumb. Living in Vegas, it is an exercise in frustration to even grow a lawn! I just love it all and thank you for sharing.

Tamerie Shriver said...

I love all your white flowers. They really pop and do look stunning.

Carole~Maynard Greenhouse said...

You do white so well. I see your allysum is still looking wonderful too. It shows that you put lots of love into your garden.
take care,
Carole

downhomeliving said...

I absolutely love your site, you sure have a green thumb, I wish my garden was this nice. I am fairly new to blogger but have loved it so far. Except for the trouble I had with my other blog messing up from using templates. But meeting all the people here & getting so many wonderful ideas for my craft room. I love yours so much! Hope to get to know more about you & your family. I am going to look up Angelmans Syndrome I have never heard of it before? Have a blessed hump day.

Tracey said...

You continue to wow me with your beautiful garden! Sweet alyssum is my favorite - I let it reseed everywhere and it always, faithfully comes back to fragrant my garden...

Hi June!!

I have never seen so many white flowers at once, much less in one garden!! And I think it is a wonderful idea to have a "white room", my sister had a portion of her garden dedicated to blue.

I love daisies and the "Alaska" daisies were so interesting!! I suppose we are in the same climate, maybe not...the wheels are turning, can I grow it??!!

I also adore the white foxglove, that is different (for me). My first foxglove bloomed this spring and I was out of my mind!! lol!!

I really enjoyed your garden and you have a very sweet blog. Happy White Wednesday!!

xoxo
Jane

That's just too wonderful for words....

Jodie LeJeune said...

Hi June!
I'm lonesome! My nose has been stuck in everyone's creative spaces (& I still didn't go through the whole list yet) that I needed to come up and smell the flowers. I knew just where to come for that...here! After smelling your last post and now this one, I think I'm rejuvinated and I owe it all to you. Thank you darling, you are the best medicine!
everything vintage

Rebecca said...

Hi June
Thank you for popping over, we are doing well thank you. I am feeling good again and my hubby is out of the hospital and feeling stronger.
Your garden is breath taking...I always wanted a moon garden too but I have too much shade and not enough space. My favorite is the new dawn...I have a blush colored and love it.
Have a great week
Blessings
Rebecca

Cindy@Cutepinkstuff said...

I like White Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by. I shopped in Shelley, Idaho Falls, and Pocatello (South East Idaho.) This weekend my sister is hauling all my treasures to me here in Southern California!

Mary said...

June, seeing your beautiful white flowers was a very pleasant surprise! As others said before me, they are breathtakingly beautiful, all in white. I would not have been bored with more of them! I'm looking forward to your next post of your white garden! And I love your angel. My precious daughter is my "angel", like your son - so special, happy, and loving. I think white is the perfect color to represent their innocence. So nice to find your blog, and thank you so much for visiting mine today. So nice to meet you!

common ground said...

Hi June, I hadn't been over to visit since last Wednesday. Your garden photos are just beautiful. I love your camera, the close-ups are wonderful. AND your studio is heaven. How fun to create in such a lovely environment!
Thanks for the visit. Have a great week.
Debra

Bella Dreams said...

WOW! Gorgeous as usual. I love sweet peas. They don't grow here well. About the time they really start climbing, it gets to hot for them and that's the end of that.

Candy said...

Your garden is fabulous. I love strolling them and will come often. Here in Texas, drought puts a halt on beautiful blossoms, so I will just enjoy yours. I am enjoying all the White Wednesday posts.

Denise said...

oh my gosh.........just when I think your garden can't get any prettier it does.....that white foxglove and roses........oh my......my heart skipped a beat!! JUST GORGEOUS!

jen said...

Simply gorgeous!! I love your willow furniture!!

Jen

Caroline said...

sweetpea said...

June, your garden is phenomenal! I could look at those pics all day! And I have a twig chair like yours that I have been considering painting white~~you helped me make that decision! Love the post!

Hugs,

Punk Rose Journal said...

What a blessing to come visit you and find such glorious pictures - I am a sucker for white, and could easily imagine myself reading a good book and enjoying a cup of tea in your garden! June, I am so happy to know you! I find that I am uplifted in spirit each time I stop in to say hello. Everything is so calm and peaceful ~ Have a wonderful Thursday! xo Sherri

Gayle said...

Your pictures are just beautiful as always:). I love the Alaska Shasta Daisies! I have never seen daisies that look like that-they are so soft and romantic with the whispy petals:).

Blessings,

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

The Annabelles are my favorite, but I love everything in your garden, June. So, so, pretty. A place to dream! That photo of your angel is gorgeous, it should be on a greeting card. Ever think about printing postcards of your photography? I've got a great site ;)
