I think a white landscape is so attractive and a part of me always wants to do this. Isn’t it quiet and peaceful. The small white flowered bush is Diamond Frost Euphorbia and the petunia is Supertunia White. Both are Proven Winners. P.Allen Smith decorated a garden in white roses.

The Stratosphere White above will bloom all summer like this. It will dance in the moonlight and catch some of the light coming from inside the house.
Most of us work during the day so having a lot of white in garden extends the brightness in to the night. You’ll have more hours to enjoy your garden.
Watch this Moonflower open! As the video above says—-have a party around the opening of your Moonflowers. Let everyone pick a time and the exact winner gets a door prize.
I especially like White 4 O’Clock Alba seeds and Select Seeds carries them. It is hard to find a packet of pure white. They usually come in a mix.

Now what other white would you add? Why was I thinking about white today? Because we are expecting snow any minute! I do mean any minute! Our temperature just dropped to 31 degrees. We are suppose to get between 6 and 12 inches. It’s our first snowfall and not unusual at all for NC. Many a year, March is our worst month. March is truly a lion in my part of the world.
I like the moisture as it is badly needed. Several weeks ago, there was a snow just east of us but it missed our area completely. April will come and it will be in the 60’s. Last year was a hot one and we don’t want to repeat that for this summer. We don’t want that drought either. I am hopeful that this summer will return to the great gardening weather that NC is known for.
