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.

Love your photos of your white blooms, Jude. The shot of the Arum Lillies with the purple is lovely along with the Clematis on the fence and your close-up of the droplets. Pretty compositions. 🙂🤍🤍🤍
I wouldn’t a mild invasion of purple columbines. Yours present a lovely contrast to the white lilies. My lily-of-the-valley, on the other hand, have yet to make an appearance. Now that grape hyacinths have finished their spectacular show, perhaps those lilies will push through.
I thought for a second you were going to say you’d got some unseasonal snow! Much nicer to see all these lovely white blooms.
Love the arty shot. White adds a lovely sparkle to a garden
The camellia looks gorgeous. I have a white lilac that is lovely but has the same problem of going brown as the flowers go over. I used to try to deadhead it but it’s a bit big for that now. Your white flowers are beautiful and add a cool freshness to the garden.
Those dew drops are exquisitely captured. I so like white in the garden and also arranging for the house.
What lovely white flowers you have in your garden, Jude. The white Camellia is gorgeous, particularly with the water droplets on it. Like everyone else here, I’m loving your arty tulip shot – that’s superb!
The white clematis also caught my eye – it’s very pretty. I lost my one and only white a few years ago – but a friend had taken a cutting. It grew and when I lost mine, she gave me back a cutting. Sadly last winter took that one too. I think it’s time to put in a new variety!
A beautiful array of white’s purity Jude. I especially loved the images with dewdrops. The image of the Tulipa, which I’d not heard of before, is stunning.
Plenty of opportunity for the droplets this month. Sadly the tulips didn’t like all the wet.
I wish Lily of the valley liked growing here, I’ve tried it 3 times but it never comes back unfortunately. Your Arum lilies seem to be flowering early, mine are barely above soil level at the moment, hopefully they will catch up soon!
Sometimes you just have to accept defeat. I can’t keep hold of Gaura here, winter wet just kills it off.
Lovely Six Jude. The Camellia looks so delicate but it’s the Anthemis that wins for me.
