White Outdoors

I have always loved white in my garden.  The heat is so intense in our area that white is just wonderful in the summer.  Other colors fade with the hot sun, but the white stays crisp and fresh.   I would love to have a garden completely planted in white, but that is for another lifetime.

Garden ornaments add interest to a garden.  As gardeners know.  A garden is always changing.  Depending on the weather, vision or time spent in the garden. 

LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME WHITE AND OUTDOORS.

 I think it's nice to have an angel in the garden.... She is so sweet.


Birds have somewhere to play.  


The strawberries have been producing for weeks and are resting now. But I found a few WHITE blooms.


The white pansies will be wilting soon.  As the weather heats up I will replace these flowers with more heat resistant plants.  I have no idea what I will put in this pot, but "that's gardening".


This duck keeps the snails from eating all the strawberries.  Ha Ha.


My sweetheart just bought this pineapple for my birthday last week.  I have always wanted to have a pineapple garden ornament. The pineapple has been a universal symbol of hospitality and welcome for centuries all over the world.


The pineapple sits on a pedestal in the middle of my rose garden next to the patio. And the angel sits on a perch watching the activity of the garden.  Keeping it safe.


Thanks so much for joining me for White Outdoors.

  7. I love all of your garden whites, especially that pedestal! I started adding white to my garden last summer, and I hope to add lots for statuary to it this summer. Your garden is lovely, and looks like a very peaceful place to spend time in!
    Happy White Wednesday!
