Lots of Blue and White

There's a lot of blue and white around at the moment, both in the sky and in the garden.

First of all, the whites:

clematis avalanche

dicentra spectabilis alba


variegated white honesty 

white lilac
Next, the blues: lots and lots of forget-me-nots



iris bud

It's not all blue and white though, the sky sometimes goes dark dark grey and the garden has splashes of other colours too.

Cerinthe self sows all over my front garden, and in the back there's more dicentra

dicentra spectabilis
 and the late flowering narcissus tresamble.

But before I go, I must just share with you a tulip, now fully opened and all frayed and pretty -

Tulip Huis Ten Bosch

Beautiful blue and whites, but the tulip Huis Ten Bosch is a beauty too. Surprising that the selfsown Cerinthe is already blooming.

I would love to take a walk in your garden but these beautiful photos are the next best thing! English Springtime - nothing like it!

I love the white clematis!
Have you ever listed how many different plants are in your garden?

I love white in the garden - I don't have enough of it and must remedy that - white bleeding hearts are just so pure - beautiful.

I love those white bleeding hearts, I've had one on my wish list for a number of years now, I really must get one. The white honesty is beautiful too, I've just got the purple variety but I'm much fonder of white flowers these days than I used to be.

So beautiful! My garden is sadly lacking in colour so lovely to see yours!
