Are you a lover of white flowers? I'll confess, I am not. I see so much white, in the form of mountain snow, that the thought of planting white flowers never really snaps my socks.
But, hey, I'm a Libra, and we're perpetually undecided.
So, after visiting Lona's pretty blog yesterday (she had an entire post of stunning white flowers) it got me thinking about how much prettier our gardens can be when we entertain the notions of others.
Left to my own devices, things would be a sea of pink and blue. But, my daughter loves white so I'll include a couple zzzzzzzzzz, ever so dull, white perennials in the flower beds just for her.
And, if you catch me on a good day, I might grudgingly agree with Hocking Hills ~ white flowers pop like nobody's business against my sea of blue.
What I didn't realize, until yesterday, is that white pops indoors just as beautifully.
And, that I am clearly in the minority when it comes to white flowers!
Because all the pretty blossoms in this post are past holiday gifts from white flower lovin' friends.
* I'm not nearly as popular as it might appear. :) Some of these whities are 5 or 6 years old. I expend a great deal of effort trying keep gifted perennials alive. Yep. I'm just that insecure. I have nightmares about the awkward moment when some friend pays me a visit, glances at the sunny window, and demands:
Oh, it died.
And, you feel qualified to be a garden blogger???
