White Love at the Nursery

Photobucket


I went on a field trip to one of my favorite nurseries here in Birmingham, Collier's Nursery.

It was very overcast when I visited, and it was almost dusk.  The whites were glowing!

I have not used much white in my gardening lately.  I am thinking about adding white flowers to compliment the blues of my hydrangeas and bright pinks of my roses.

Do you have lots of white in your garden?

I am linking up to White Wednesday, and Cottage Flora Thursday.






Until nest time...

Blessings!

  4. I love the pictures! We are SO far from having plants that look like that in our nurseries!

    I love white plants because they pop in the garden. I think some white will look great with your hydrangeas and roses.

    Have a great day!

  8. How funny. I just did a post of white blooms from my yard, posted it and went back to see if there and there you are on the same row with your GORGEOUS post of flowers. I want one of those mixed wood pots. They are to die for. Absolutely beautiful post!!!

  9. Love it Ricki Jill! I only use pops of white in the garden--you know I am a color girl--but I have seen it done and in the moonlight it glows. Really beautiful!

  10. Ricki, you took such beautiful images, that I felt as though I'd gone right along with you! I love the smell in a Nursery as well as the coolness, the mist in the air and the lovely garden elements everywhere. Thank you for sharing and such a lovely post, xoxo tami

  12. It's funny but I don't use many white flowers either - I'm just crazy about all the colours of flowers together in a garden. I love the container you showed with all different whites and greens. I don't know if I could be that restrained though. Such pretty flowers - I think I need a greenhouse trip as well.

  13. I love white in the garden, hydrangeas, daisies, roses, phlox and bleeding hearts. The white makes all the green look so good.

  14. Very pretty pictures. I don't have any white in my garden. I think because we see so much white throughout Winter that when Summer rolls around, I want nothing but beautiful color.

  18. I started an all white garden at my old house and just love the idea of it. But slowly, over time, my sweet husband started bringing in bits of color. He didn't get the concept of the all-white theme. By the time he passed away, the garden was full of day lilies, a small lilac bush, yarrow, and peonies. The original plantings of lily-of-the-valley, hosta, shasta daisies, and white roses still thrived but their colorful neighbors overshadowed them. Thanks for bringing this concept back to light. I'm in a new house and I don't think there's been much gardening done here in the last 50 years so I'm looking forward to planting some of my favorites. Maybe I'll find a little spot for an all white area. I love the idea and always have. Thanks for visiting me at Cottage and Creek. Your comments always brighten my day.

  24. White is a wonderful color in the garden..the flowers just glow at night. This nursery has some beautiful plants and garden art!

  25. So fun to use white in your garden - especially along pathways because it almost gives a "glowing" effect in the areas when they are in bloom - you'll have to try it! Thanks so much for linking up to Cottage Flora Thursday's and sharing the party with your friends! Hope to see more of you! xoox
