White Flowers

To analyze the charms of flowers is like dissecting music;
it is one of those things which it is far better to enjoy,
than to attempt to fully understand.

~Henry T. Tuckerman~


White Flowers-2





White Flowers-3

Colours change: in the morning light, red shines out bright and clear and the blues merge into their surroundings,

melting into the greens; but by the evening the reds loose their piquancy, embracing a quieter tone

and shifting toward the blues in the rainbow. Yellow flowers remain bright,

and white ones become luminous,

shining like ghostly figures against a darkening

green background.

~Rosemary Verey, The Scented Garden, 1981~

BEAUTIFUL!! They are all gorgeous, but I think the top right is my favorite. I love the aged texture.

White foxgloves! I need some of those! :)
I have always wanted to plant a moonlight garden full of white flowers that will glow in full-moon-light.

Beautiful, beautiful!
