Six on Saturday | The White Stuff

Although there are a lot of colours in the garden now, this week I thought I would stick to the white ones. A nice non colour to have in the garden to cool things down, though I no longer have a purely white bed.

These Arum lilies come back each year despite having pulled many of them out. They get a bit nibbled. The Aquilegia vulgaris (common columbine, granny’s nightcap) seems to have invaded my garden this year.
The cheap Asda Clematis montana is making a move along the back fence. Now that the Kilmarnock Willow tree is no more we can actually see this from the house this year.
Clematis and honeysuckle
Despite most of the Anthemis cupaniana (white Sicilian chamomile ) being pulled out / eaten by the sheep in the wild garden I luckily had some cuttings for the sunny border. I probably should take some more!
An arty shot of Tulipa ‘Green Star’ which was beautifully adorned with droplets during the rather foggy weather we have had this month. Unusual as the fog most commonly appears here in August (and in the winter).
A not very clear shot of my lily-of-the-valley / Convallaria majalis which has flowered for the first time. I think I bought these plants from Tesco in 2020. I hope now that they are established I will have many more of these beautifully fragranced flowers in the future.
The very last of my white camellia. Sadly these flowers often get caught by the wind and the rain and go a very nasty brown.

Jim of Garden Ruminations is now our host and as a former nurseryman has a lot more than the SOS happening over on his blog so well worth following.

    If spending time outdoors during summer a white garden comes into it’s own. I like the clematis image and I enjoyed growing it when I had a garden.

      I have 13 clematis here, they are great for colouring up the fences. I really need to buy a winter flowering one to plug the gap!

        That will brighten up your winter garden 🙂

      White gardens are very cooling and calming spaces.
