The weather here has been beautiful the last two days so I've been working in the yard. I like to dig in the dirt and just listen to the sounds of nature as it's very grounding (no pun intended). After years of purple, pink and blue gardens, I'm loving the idea of an all white and green garden. It's so peaceful and it really allows you to focus on the architecture of the house.
But it also satisfies my obsession with Boxwood's and Hydrangeas. Especially when the Boxwood is used as a hedge surrounding the Hydrangeas. Now if only I could keep my Hydrangeas white. My soil likes to turn them blue or pink which drives me crazy.
Add some pea gravel and brick and I'm in heaven.
Heavenly - the Pee Gee Hydrangea tree.
Crepe Myrtles are my favorite flowering tree. I tried to plant them in my backyard but unfortunately they don't love the Northwest climate. I settled for white flowering Cherries instead. But, someday I will have these babies.
Climbing roses and vines make me swoon.
Creeping Fig vines is another great option.
This border is divine. Just wish Hostas and Tulips would flower at the same time at my house.
Love this Azalea border with Hydrangeas. This would be the perfect garden for the Northwest.
