Dressed in White


There are still some white blooms
hanging around in the garden.

Iceberg2

The Iceberg Roses have worked so hard
their first year in the rose bed.
If you like white blooms this and roses
too this is the rose for you.Iceberg

The one cosmos left standing in the
middle bed has escaped the freezing temperatures.

Some Alyssum under the eaves have
remained blooming so far.

The shiny silver leaves of Plumonaria
Diana Clare have been beautiful all summer
and still look good for the most part this fall.

The newer white Pansies in the window
boxes are loving the cooler temperatures.

And on a walk at Old Mans Cave Park a white
wood anemone starting to fade away.

Lona, what gorgeous flowers! White!!! Not orange and yellow, but white! I want to be a bride again!

I just love white in the garden and you've got some beauties. White Cosmos is definitely my favourite ... far prefer it to the pinks. Your white Iceberg is a stunner ... and those white pansies are terrific.

They all look pure and elegant. The pansy looks like it is smiling loving the cooler temperature as you said.

Hi Lona, lovely post featuring white flowers. Following the post before, it could be seen as a fitting tribute to your dad. Cheers, catmint

What beautiful whites!! A lovely prelude to snow perhaps?

Shirley said...

I love white in the garden. It is so beautful, especially in the evening when sitting in the yard, enjoying the fire and entertaining. Iceberg roses are magnificent beauties.

Just gorgeous. Lovely roses and the white cosmos is out of this world.

Lona, all the lovely white flowers. I was afraid when I saw your title for this post that it meant you had a snowstorm, so imagine my delight at seeing blooms instead! I remember our visit to Old Man's Cave vividly, what a beautiful place it is. I hope you have a great weekend!

Theresa said...

Beautiful white blooms. Did you save some of the white cosmos seeds?

I received your seeds yesterday, thank you so very much. Just trying to figure out the best time to plant the phlox, outside? and when? or inside and then transplant in the spring?

Joe Todd said...

Great photos as always. With this great weather I've been golfing instead of blogging LOL

Phoenix C. said...

Oh what beautiful white blooms! I love white, and would love to visit Sissinghurst's white garden.

You mentioned in your comment on my blog about wanting to photograph a rainbow - I hadn't realized there was a rainbow in the sky until I saw it on my photo!! I often find I see things I hadn't noticed on location when I look at my photos, so the rainbow was a nice surprise!

shirl said...

Ah Lona, white flowers... I have long since been a fan. Loved seeing yours. Had Iceberg once but don't know what happened to it. Have a few white Anemones too :-D

Stunning photos, thanks for celebrating white like this. Have a good day, however you like to spend it :-)

sweetbay said...

Your whites in the garden are just beautiful.

Jean said...

What a wonderful way to enjoy 'white' in this season. So much better than snow! Beautiful! Jean

Jeannie B. said...

I love your white flowers. But love the white roses the best of all!

perennialgardener said...

Lovely white blooms, and you captured them so beautifully as well. :)

Stella said...

I have to plant an Iceburg rose. It was 28 here last night but I still have some roses hanging in there. Can't believe it is the middle of Nov. and I still have roses. Have a lovely week.

Priscilla said...

Your garden is always beautiful, white is simply lovely and elegant in the garden. Thanks for sharing a wonderful post!

Jeri Landers said...

I am amazed that you still have these blooms in November and in Ohio to boot! Everything here has frosted over, alas.

Barbara said...

White is one of my favorite flower colors. I just love your pristine pansies - lovely. Especially now in the fall where colors are fading the whites seem more appropriate somehow. Subdued but glowing.

Ellie said...

Very nice! I don't have many white flowers in my garden but I am seriously tempted to plant more after seeing these pictures.

threedogsinagarden said...

Those white Iceberg roses are so beautiful and what a great photo you took of them!

Janet said...

White blooms add such a punch in the garden. I have heard great things about Iceberg Roses, yours is certainly a beautiful example.
