My garden is sporting the most innocent color it will have all season. White is definitely stunning when it's on the bride, but more so when it's in the flowers. Here is a photo essay of the beauty happening this week. To start out the show we have a dwarf white columbine that is only about 12 inches tall, it is the first of the columbines to bloom. It is a soft silky white with blue green leaves.
Next we have the dainty galanthus showing it's downward facing bright white blooms with green tips.
True to form are the swaying, creamy off-white tulips standing out among the brights of red and yellow.
Drifts of white phlox are coming down from the terraced planting in the front.
And soon to show the most stunning of blossoms will be the double white clematis. Here are the unique buds.
And what the double white clematis will look like in a couple of weeks.
Well until the next show of color, I hope this tides you over.

I have the same plant, and It's one of my favourites. I alway's thought it was a leuocojum, but Whatever, it's a lovely plant. But to the white clemmie, White are for me the nicest you can get, but unfortunatly we lost the best one we ever had, by a man putting up a fence. I think it was called MADAM LE COULTRE. I could be wrong, but it's the size of a dinner plate and very prolific in growing.
