More of the white garden...

Here are some more pictures of Julie's lovely white garden. I think she has done such a beautiful job of "composing" her plants.

The bedding begonias do nicely in her garden. Their iridescence and simplicity add a certain sparkle to the planting.

She loves ferns and has planted a few in her garden. One of her favorite ferns is the Maidenhair Fern. When I discovered that there was a hardy Maidenhair fern (Adiantum venustum), of course she asked if she could have one for her garden. I got it from Plant Delights Nursery and it is doing well.

Some very cool variegated leaves.

She has a birdbath in her garden. The stones in the birdbath is an idea that she borrowed from me. I think they add interest.

I didn't realize that English Ivy is hardy, but it is and so now it stays outside for the winter. Julie is training it to grow around the birdbath. I love this vignette.

Have a beautiful day!

very pretty. all.

I recently learned that begonia flowers are edible, so we have been dressing up our salads quite a bit lately.
