137Days #229 White

Today was a hot 99. I got home from work late. I felt tired, wilted and lazy so I roamed around the yard enjoying the shade and the flowers. I took some photos of white flowers which I wanted to share with you. They look so calm and cool.

White hydrangea blooms create a mass about ten inches in diameter.

This is the first year we have planted all white flowers. They seem to glow with a brilliance that out shines all the beautiful colors we have had in past years. That was such a surprise to me and they are so gorgeous as it becomes dusk, when the colorful blooms lose their vibrance, the whites seem to glow.

It was a great choice for our landscaping this year.

What is your favorite color scheme for flowers in your yard? Do you have a single favorite or do you love them all?

Cheers,
