Autumn Whiteout

Currently, the most notable bloomers in my urban garden all have white flowers.  It not is something that I planned.  The mental scheme I executed begins with a spring garden of cool tones, transitioning to hot brights in summer and then to warmer shades in fall.  However, this wintry mix of summer hangers-on and timely fall blossoms is a nice surprise and I like the way these ghostly flowers are ushering in the cool air.

  1. Really neat white stems on the crocus.

    I have a mostly white garden planned for my new expansion. Somewhat concerned it will look too white, but I guess it’s always a good foil for the seasonal colors – I also like the pastels in the spring, hot in the summer and burnished in the fall.

  2. I like your white flowers. Some people work to make all white beds. Yours just do it naturally.

  3. Nice path past the moonflower vine–it’s very inviting.
